TRANSPARENCY REPORT | LEGAL STRUCTURE, OWNERSHIP AND GOVERNANCE

Public Interest Committee

The Public Interest Committee (PIC) has oversight over public interest

matters in relation to the firm's audit practice. Independent Non-Executives

(INEs) form the majority of the Committee's complement which enables

them to direct the Committee's work and ensure that its principal objectives

are fulfilled.

A sound ethical culture and ethical

decision-making are significant contributors

to the overall tone at the top of the firm and

how it delivers professional services. The

deputy ethics partner, Tom McMorrow, sits

on the PIC which ensures meaningful liaison

between the INEs, the Ethics Team and the

Head of Quality Assurance. The Ethics Partner

sits on the RSM UK Holdings Board so is

accountable to the INE, Vijay Thakrar, who is

also a NED for RSM UK Holdings Limited.

Members of the PIC are appointed to serve

for a period of three years, renewable by joint

agreement of the member and the firm.

The PIC meets quarterly before

Management Board meetings and

as required at other times during

the year.

The duties of the PIC are:

● to engage with external stakeholders

including regulators, investors and

shareholders, and respond purposefully

to any concerns;

● to ensure an appropriate culture and

tone at the top exists within the firm

● to engage with internal stakeholders

including meeting with the CEO and

Chairman of RSM UK Holdings Limited

and being satisfied that principals and

employees have a discreet avenue of

recourse for dispute resolution or counsel;

● to recognise and ensure the

firm's adherence to its public

interest responsibilities;
