governance

Organisation - on a solid foundation

The principles of corporate governance of the LHI Group are, among other things, shaped by the relevant legal framework conditions. The key elements of the legal requirements relate to a continuous separation of functions between decision-making and controlling business units that extends right up to management level. The LHI risk management system covers the company, the subsidiaries and all managed companies. The organisational structure includes the areas required by law, such as auditing, risk controlling and compliance.

 

Risk management – keeping an eye on risks

The concept of caution is an important principle in our business policy. However, any business activity involves taking risks. Risks can arise at any point in a company. It is impossible to identify and quantify all potential risks in advance. However, in order to minimise the risks, LHI has set up guidelines for a risk culture and implemented mechanisms that take effect at different points in the process chains.

Compliance - we stick to the rules

LHI has set up a compliance function that adheres to legal requirements. As a result of the KWG (German Banking Act), the KAGB (German Investment Code) and the WpHG (Securities Trading Act), LHI Leasing GmbH, LHI Kapitalverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH and LHI Capital Management GmbH are subject to different regulatory frameworks. 

In addition, LHI has defined its conduct in compliance-relevant matters in various guidelines. This includes, for example, regulations on insider information and employee transactions or on the handling of conflicts of interest.

LHI has an internal auditing department and a Money Laundering Officer in accordance with Sections 7, 9 (1) No. 2 GWG (Money Laundering Act).

 

Together - appreciative in everything we do

The legal rights of workers are respected at all locations. The company suggestion scheme is well-established. This also applies to sustainability issues. Our workers are employed in full respect of all human rights. For service providers, we make sure that we always pay the minimum wage.

Remuneration structure - fair and transparent

Remuneration policy is an important part of our company policy. The aim of LHI is to take into account the interests of the company, the shareholders, the investors and the employees equally and to support the sustainable and positive development of LHI through market- and performance-based remuneration. LHI has a remuneration system which fulfils the regulatory requirements and promotes the responsible and risk-aware conduct of its employees.
