The Board has four Committees: the Audit Committee, the Management Engagement Committee, the Nomination Committee and from 1 April 2021 the Sustainability Committee. Given the Board’s size, it is not felt appropriate for the Company to have a separate remuneration committee and the full Board deals with the functions that this committee would normally carry out.

The Committee’s terms of reference are available below:

Audit Committee

The Audit Committee is comprised of Lynette Lackey (Chair), Martin Meech and Aimée Pitman, all of whom are independent non-executive Directors.

The Audit Committee meets at least two times a year within the appropriate reporting and audit cycle. The Committee’s responsibilities include monitoring the financial integrity of the financial statements of Warehouse REIT plc, communication with the Company’s auditor, reviewing the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control systems and risk management systems and overseeing the process for managing risks across Warehouse REIT plc.

The Audit Committee focuses in particular on compliance with legal requirements, accounting standards and the rules of the FCA and ensuring that an effective system of internal financial control is maintained. The ultimate responsibility for reviewing and approving the annual report and accounts and the half-yearly reports remains with the Board of Directors of Warehouse REIT plc.
