PRUDENTIAL STANDARD APS 330 REMUNERATION DISCLOSURE

Table 18: Remuneration disclosure requirements

Qualitative disclosures Heritage Disclosure
(a) Information relating to the bodies that oversee remuneration. Disclosures must include:  
the name, composition and mandate of the main body overseeing remuneration; The Remuneration and Governance Committee is made up of three non-executive directors. These non-executive directors include Mr Kerry Betros, Dr Dennis Campbell and Mr Brendan Baulch. The Remuneration and Governance Committee is appointed and authorised by Heritage's Board to assist the Board in fulfilling its regulatory obligations. Accordingly, the Remuneration and Governance Committee exercises the authority and power delegated to it by the Board.
the name of external consultants whose advice has been sought, the body by which they were commissioned, and in what areas of the remuneration process; No external consultants have been recently engaged in connection with Heritage senior executive remuneration. However, industry benchmarks and externally available data is generally used to obtain industry comparisons.
a description of the scope of the ADI's Remuneration Policy (e.g. by regions, business lines), including the extent to which it is applicable to foreign subsidiaries and branches; and Heritage's Remuneration Policy provides a framework for rewarding senior executives, other staff and business partners and encourages behaviour that supports Heritage's long-term financial soundness and risk management framework. The policy applies to, among others, any person employed directly by Heritage and covers all entities within the Heritage group.
a description of the types of persons considered as material risk takers and as senior managers as defined in paragraph 17 of this Prudential Standard, including the number of persons in each group. Heritage’s “senior managers” and “material risk takers” as defined in paragraph 17 of this Prudential Standard include those persons defined as Heritage’s “senior executives”. They include the Chief Executive Officer, the Company Secretary / Assistant Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Financial Officer, the Chief Operating Officer, the Chief Treasury and Business Strategy Officer, the General Manager, Marketing, the General Manager, Human Resources, the General Manager, Retail Services, the General Manager, Emerging Business Streams and the General Manager, Information Technology.
(b) Information relating to the design and structure of remuneration processes. Disclosures must include:  
an overview of the key features and objectives of remuneration policy; A key objective of Heritage's remuneration philosophy is to enable Heritage to attract, motivate and retain high performing senior executives. Remuneration, including any performance based component, is designed to appropriately reward senior executives (and all employees) to encourage behaviour that supports Heritage's long-term financial soundness and risk management framework. In this regard, Heritage's Human Resources department has a set of policies and procedures in connection with remuneration including incentives, commissions and other benefits.
whether the Remuneration Committee reviewed the ADI's Remuneration Policy during the past year, and if so, an overview of any changes that were made; and The Remuneration and Governance Committee has not reviewed Heritage's Remuneration Policy during the past year.
a discussion of how the ADI ensures that risk and financial control personnel (as defined in paragraph 48(b) of CPS 510) are remunerated independently of the businesses they oversee. Risk and financial control personnel are paid a fixed component of remuneration that reflects their core performance requirements and the expectations associated with their particular position. These personnel are eligible to be paid a yearly incentive dependent on the individual's performance throughout the year and the duties and responsibilities undertaken. Such personnel are not provided with a yearly incentive payment on the sole basis of Heritage's financial performance.
(c) Description of the ways in which current and future risks are taken into account in the remuneration processes. Disclosures must include:  
an overview of the key risks that the ADI takes into account when implementing remuneration measures; Risk management is built into the framework for certain senior executives to ensure specific risk management outcomes and actions. Key risks may include IT system availability, fraud management, arrears rates and prudential and legislative compliance.
an overview of the nature and type of the key measures used to take account of these risks, including risks difficult to measure (values need not be disclosed); The nature of the risk management framework associated with remuneration varies from senior executive to senior executive. Key risks may include IT system availability, fraud management, arrears rates and prudential and legislative compliance. Measurable outcomes may be developed against these risks in certain circumstances.
a discussion of the ways in which these measures affect remuneration; and For senior executives, any performance based component of remuneration is designed to align remuneration with prudent risk-taking and incorporate adjustments to reflect the outcomes of business activities, the risks related to the business activities taking account, where relevant, of the cost of the associated capital and the time necessary for the outcomes of those business activities to be reliably measured.
a discussion of how the nature and type of these measures has changed over the past year and reasons for the change, as well as the impact of changes on remuneration. The key measures relating to remuneration are seen as appropriate for the environment and business objectives and have not changed in the past twelve months.
(d) Description of the ways in which the ADI seeks to link performance during a performance measurement period with levels of remuneration. Disclosures must include:  
an overview of the main performance metrics for the ADI, top-level business lines and individuals; Senior executives are paid a competitive fixed component of remuneration that reflects their core performance requirements and the expectations associated with their particular position. No senior executive is provided with a yearly incentive payment on the basis of Heritage's financial performance. Senior executives may be paid a yearly incentive dependent on the individual's performance throughout the year and the duties and responsibilities undertaken. Senior executive performance is measured against four areas, namely culture, individual performance, leadership and strategy.
a discussion of how amounts of individual remuneration are linked to institution-wide and individual performance; and The opportunity for senior executives to be granted a yearly incentive payment is designed to support Heritage's overall remuneration policy by focussing senior executives on achieving yearly personal performance goals which contribute to sustainable Heritage growth and member value. Linking short term incentive payments to individual performance ensures that senior executives establish a People first work culture that continually supports Heritage's long term financial soundness. Heritage does not offer any long term incentive benefits or any remuneration deferral mechanism to senior executives.
a discussion of the measures the ADI will in general implement to adjust remuneration in the event that performance metrics are weak. The Board may adjust performance-based components of senior executive remuneration downwards, to zero if appropriate, if such adjustments are necessary to protect the financial soundness of Heritage or respond to significant unexpected or unintended consequences that were not foreseen by the Remuneration and Governance Committee.
(e) Description of the ways in which the ADI seeks to adjust remuneration to take account of longer-term performance. Disclosures must include:
a discussion of the ADI's policy on deferral and vesting of variable remuneration and, if the fraction of variable remuneration that is deferred differs across persons or groups of persons, a description of the factors that determine the fraction and their relative importance; and a discussion of the ADI's policy and criteria for adjusting deferred remuneration before vesting and after vesting through clawback arrangements.
Not applicable
(f) Description of the different forms of variable remuneration that the ADI utilises and the rationale for using these different forms. Disclosures must include:
an overview of the forms of variable remuneration offered (i.e., cash, shares and share-linked instruments and other forms); and a discussion of the use of the different forms of variable remuneration and, if the mix of different forms of variable remuneration differs across persons or groups of persons), a description the factors that determine the mix and their relative importance.
