Board of Directors

Ilmarinen's Board of Directors

The Board of Directors’ term of office is four years. The term of office of all Board members will thus, as a general rule, expire at the end of 2021.

The Board of Directors is responsible for the company’s governance and the appropriate organisation of the company’s operations. The Board of Directors is responsible for ensuring that the control of the company’s accounting and finance has been organised appropriately. In addition, the Board of Directors prepares the issues to be discussed at Annual General Meetings, elects preparatory committees at least for the nomination, compensation and auditing issues it handles and draws up the company’s investment plan. The Supervisory Board elects 14 members and four deputy members to the Board of Directors for a term of four years. At least half of the members and deputy members of the Board of Directors will be elected from persons nominated by central labour market organisations representing employers and employees so that the candidates of both the employer and employee organisations are equally represented.
