AIMS Enablement is responsible for developing and managing AIMS Holding’s services and logistical requirements, while acting as our main corporate governance unit. They provide direction and recommendations on operational practices focused on ensuring compliance with the Group’s standards and values, and thus enhancing management’s ability to implement the required regulations and allowing the board to exercise effective oversight.
Customers, investors, and the public recognise that a sound, robust and competitive financial services sector is a key component of a healthy economy. Customers want products and services, and investors want returns; meanwhile, regulators and the public want accountability, responsibility, safety, and soundness in institutions and the financial system. Balancing these expectations calls for AIMS Holding and its subsidiaries to be as cohesive as possible in order to grow within the purview of sound governance.
The role of AIMS Enablement is to organise operational, financial, risk management, and reporting processes, so that the board receives the information it requires to affect good governance and management and for the business units to conduct their activities in ways that comply with regulations and serve strategic ends. It is also responsible for ensuring the governance framework is embedded into operational roles, responsibilities, reporting lines, and communications.
AIMS believe that the most effective way to retain its position as a market leader is by:
2. Maintaining transparency in pledges and agreements, and respecting stakeholders;
3. Developing knowledge and technology that fully supports the Group;
4. Cultivating opportunities for innovation and creativity;
5. Continually observing the Vision, Mission, and Values of the Group.
Through this structure, AIMS Enablement is able to answer questions such as, “Why are we doing this?” “Is this okay?” “Whose call is this?” and “Who do we need to tell about this?” and to know when to ask such questions as well as sustaining governance by creating a feedback loop in which the board and management can identify and respond to new business, operational, competitive, and regulatory needs.
AIMS Community develops and manages AIMS social initiatives and philanthropy projects while acting as the main corporate responsibility unit. The strategic approach to corporate responsibility undertaken by AIMS maximises the overall effect of initiatives to support its community.
AIMS puts people first. Ahead of returns on investments and financial growth. We think of those in need, the underprivileged and the less fortunate, and we strive to do what our core values dictate, giving without expecting in return.
Cultural transformation that fuels success must be implemented on all levels of the organisation. Changes in culture happen when integrity is demonstrated by top-level management and practised by all. AIMS leaders are consistent in the face of adversity, demonstrating accountability through their actions, act with authenticity and honesty by speaking the truth, and take responsibility for their own feelings and actions.
With a clear and structured approach, AIMS operates with ‘the big picture’ in mind, in terms of business opportunities and challenges. Making decisions that position the organisation for long-term success, with the ability to adapt to organisational changes and evolving markets.
