The Bank für Tirol und Vorarlberg Aktiengesellschaft (‘BTV’) commits to comply with the Principles of Corporate Governance. We are only too glad to take on this responsibility in line with our positioning as a bank with spirit and attitude.
Which ownership structure suits a bank distinguished by independence, openness, and proximity to its customers? In 1986, the BTV decided to open up its ownership structure and go public. So it deliberately decided on transparency and ongoing, comprehensive justification of its activity. Not least our responsibility toward our shareholders, which we take very seriously, has made the BTV a highly profitable company.
Values-oriented corporate governance
The Austrian Corporate Governance Codex prescribes the principles of good corporate governance and is viewed by investors as an important guide. As a company listed on the Austrian stock exchange, BTV’s Management and Supervisory Boards unanimously decided in the meeting of the Supervisory Board on 23 March 2018 to commit to the Austrian Corporate Governance Codex in the version from January 2018.
Since then, the BTV has aimed to continually increase the company value. BTV’s position on the market cannot be viewed in isolation: since the 3 Banken Group is publicly known as Oberbank, BKS Bank, and BTV, it wishes to fully live up to its responsibility. So the three banks are committed to values-oriented, transparent corporate governance as defined by the Principles of Corporate Governance.
Corporate Governance Report and Codex
