We are committed to conducting our business in a manner consistent with the best practices of corporate governance. Our Board of Directors and management are engaged in a regular process of developing and implementing principles and practices that reflect this commitment to sound corporate governance.
Please find below information relating to our corporate governance, including Corporate Governance Guidelines, Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, the charters of MFA's Board committees and other matters.
Corporate Governance Guidelines
Our Board of Directors has adopted Corporate Governance Guidelines that address significant issues of corporate governance, set forth procedures by which the Board carries out its responsibilities and provide a framework for the company’s governance. The Corporate Governance Guidelines cover issues such as Board composition, Board functions and responsibilities, Board committees, director qualification standards, access to management and independent advisors, director compensation, management succession, director orientation and continuing education, and Board and committee performance evaluations.
The Board's Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee is responsible for assessing and periodically reviewing the adequacy of the Corporate Governance Guidelines and will recommend, as appropriate, proposed changes to the Board.
