Lifelong learning

The Dutch Banking Code, which came into effect in 2010, required Supervisory Board members to follow a formal program of lifelong learning. At FMO, this began in 2010 and was continued and expanded in 2011.

The program of lifelong learning was also used as a starting point for the preparation of the 2013-2016 strategy.

Last year, Supervisory Board members participated in learning sessions on the following subjects:

  • The Agribusiness, food & water sector, which FMO added as a focus sector in 2011;
  • The Housing sector, another of FMO's focus sectors;
  • Risk management;
  • International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) accounting rules;
  • Procedures around FMO's Special Operations activities;
  • Climate change;
  • Development effectiveness.
