Bank’s Corporate Governance Code
Capital Bank is committed to ensuring that its policies and practices reflect the highest levels of corporate governance. We have established a comprehensive framework of policies and systems that ensures full accountability to our shareholders and other stakeholders, including the bank’s customers, employees and the broader community.
The bank is directed by the board of directors, which has overall responsibility for the operations and financial soundness of the bank. The board defines the bank’s strategic goals and exercises control over its executive management. The board consists of thirteen members, a mix of executive and nonexecutive directors.
To increase efficiency and speed up decision making, the board has formed seven committees: the Nominations and Remuneration Committee, the Corporate Governance Committee, the Audit Committee, the Risk Management Committee, the Compliance Committee, the Credit Facilities Committee and the IT Governance Committee.
The board of directors and the bank’s executive management are further responsible for developing and monitoring an internal control system that ensures the accuracy and integrity of financial statements, as well as compliance with applicable laws, regulations and instructions.

Governance and Management of Information and Related Technologies Guide
Information technology (IT) is one of the most important elements of the business world due to its active role in managing institutional operations, meeting companies’ needs and seeking to achieve their goals. It is a catalyst for change and one of the most important elements of development and distinction between institutions. For these reasons, Capital Bank must follow the sound tenets and standards of accepted international practices in its management of IT. The Central Bank of Jordan issued instructions for the government and management of IT and related technologies – COBIT 5 no. 65/2016 on October 25, 2016 – and these are now an integral part of the corporate governance project, their application having since become a fundamental requirement for all banks in Jordan. This includes the formation of committees to implement governance-related tasks.
