Corporate governance

The framework and policies which govern how we operate 

Our governance approach

Dexus prides itself in ensuring the highest standard of corporate governance and is focused on fostering a culture of ethical conduct and best practice.

The Dexus Board believes that good corporate governance supports:

  • A culture of ethical behaviour resulting in an organisation that acts with integrity
  • Improved decision-making processes
  • Better controls and risk management
  • Improved relationships with stakeholders
  • Accountability and transparency

Dexus Funds Management Limited (DXFM) is the Responsible Entity of each of the four trusts that comprise Dexus and is also responsible for management of the group's third party capital partner investments.  To maintain best practice corporate governance across its funds and mandates, the Board has established a corporate governance framework to apply to these funds, capital partner investments.  Each year we review our policies and practices in accordance with best practice and the latest edition of the ASX Corporate Governance Council’s principles and recommendations.
