Shaping the future of our industry

Fundamental changes are happening to our industry – and faster than ever before. Regulatory legislations based on international laws affect us as well as our peers in what we can and cannot do. Market dynamics and payment behavior changes the customer expectations when it comes to how we interact with customers in digital channels. Big data, social media, robotics, seamless and integrated solutions are all topics we need to adapt to.

With the speed of innovation in the FinTech industry, we as the leading independent expert in credit management services are obligated to continue developing solutions that will help people manage credit.

Our industry is facing disruptive changes. It is our responsibility to continue innovating to create better solutions.

We aim to be the forerunner in all the markets we are present in, driving innovation and pushing the boundaries of what is possible in order to give the best customer service to our clients and customers. We don’t see obstacles, we see opportunities.

The Lindorff way

Helping people towards sustainable spending means an improved quality of life for our customers, predictable payments for our clients and a society of fairer trade. 

When our clients send us the case, we already know that they need their money quickly and reliably. Equally importantly they want their customer to come back to them afterwards and they trust in us to make this happen. Reducing churn and restoring customers. In Lindorff, we take pride in how we do ethical business and how we strive to drive the innovation and operational effectiveness in our industry.

In order to make sure that all of our countries are aligned, we have developed the “Lindorff Business Practice Principles”. The aim of Lindorff's Business Practice Principles is to encourage and uphold appropriate behaviors in a way in which we undertake business activities within the company.

Our governance model

We are committed to healthy corporate governance practice which will strengthen confidence in our company additionally to contribute to optimal value creation over time. The objective of corporate governance is to regulate the division of roles between shareholders, the Board of Directors and Management in a more detailed way than what is regulated by law. 

Lindorffer
We strongly believe in empowering all Lindorffers to make decisions and take initiatives within the framework of governance.

Principles

Our principles for corporate governance are based on the following elements:

  • Lindorff will provide open, reliable and relevant communication to the outside world about the company’s activities and its corporate governance. 
  • Lindorff’s Board of Directors will be autonomous, and independent of the company’s executive management. 
  • Lindorff will pay particular attention to ensuring that there are no conflicts of interest between the interests of its shareholders, the members of its Board of Directors and its Executive management. Where conflicts of interest do arise, the company will ensure that it has rules and procedures to deal with the situation in a professional manner. 
  • Lindorff will ensure a clear division of responsibility between the Board of Directors and the CEO. 
  • Lindorff will treat all shareholders equally. 
  • Lindorff will have a sound and effective corporate governance structure which comply with external laws and regulations outlined through Group-wide policies and procedures. 

A well-established compliance structure is part of our corporate governance.

This is supported by company wide policies and procedures as well as assurance through monitoring and reviews. Through a clear “Tone at the top” and involvement of all Lindorffers at any level, we have been building a strong compliance culture.

All Lindorffers have to complete this program and sign a declaration to confirm that they will comply with the our companies policies and procedures.
