The governance of Kiloutou revolves around a Board of Directors and a Management Department, framed by this set of ethics and ethical rules: compliance.

This corporate structure, introduced in 2011, aligns with the same level of requirements as the biggest groups, to guarantee the performance and the permanence of Kiloutou. The areas of responsibility of the Board and Management are clearly established. Organized, structured and ethical, the company can thus develop in confidence, with a perfect control of risks.

” Compliance “

Compliance at Kiloutou corresponds to our ethics and ethical values. It is designed to safeguard the security of our data, and all our assets, including the good reputation of the company.

These rules of professional conduct are strictly observed by our audit department, which also has an internal warning system.

The Board of Directors

The composition of the Board of Directors opens up a very rich space for discussions, where the taste for a challenge is shared, as much as it is questioned. The mix of our skills, our attachment to the company and our associated think-tanks allow us to carefully analyze the risks / opportunities of each situation. And we have good operating rules to get the information back quickly. Kiloutou can therefore move quickly, with the best guarantees in its decision-making.»
