Non-executive directors (NEDs) perform a central role in corporate governance, in providing effective challenge to executives.

In this paper we set out a tentative framework to enable businesses to ensure that NEDs and IHLs have a stronger understanding of each other’s roles and how they can support each other in those roles.
