Governance and Leadership

Our strategy is to create sustainable value by achieving operational excellence, developing and acquiring business both in the UK and internationally, and pursuing profitable growth. Underpinned by our Purpose, Vision and Cultural Principles, our strategy centres around a focus on clients, a clear commitment to our colleagues and to technology, and a robust financing strategy.

Our governance structure and leadership supports the development and delivery of our strategy, seeks to mitigate risks, and manages operational aspects – all to ensure our business is strong, best prepared to serve our clients, and well equipped to take on future opportunities and challenges. Sitting at the heart of everything we do are our colleagues, and our approach to governance is also grounded in a determination for DAC Beachcroft to be an inclusive place where talented people want to work.   

Our structure

DAC Beachcroft LLP sits at the top of our LLP Group structure which comprises a growing number of UK and international entities. 

Our governance infrastructure is based on that of a major corporate, yet preserves the overarching spirit of partnership. Responsibility for the management of the LLP Group is delegated by the firm’s Members (or equity partners) to the LLP Group Board, chaired by our Senior Partner. Our Members retain decision making over significant and Member-specific decisions. 

The LLP Group Board is supported by two Board committees: the LLP Group Audit Committee and the LLP Group Remuneration and Nomination Committee. Any matters which are not reserved to the LLP Group Board or its committees are for the decision of our Managing Partner, supported by the LLP Group Executive.

A voluntary description of the LLP Group’s governance against the Wates Principles can be found here.
