Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 17th June 2019. DiliTrust, the leader in corporate governance solutions, has strengthened its position in Mauritius and reinforced its status as a key player in the African corporate governance market, with the adoption of DiliTrust Exec by Grit Group.
Grit Real Estate Income Group Limited is a leading pan-African real estate company focused on investing in and actively managing a diversified portfolio of assets in carefully selected African countries.The company is listed on the London Stock Exchange, the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and the Stock Exchange of Mauritius.
As part of the group’s ambition to digitalise its board documents, Grit Group chose the board portal DiliTrust Exec, the solution designed to digitise board and committee meetings. “With its three listings, Grit Group has a big responsibility towards its stakeholders in terms of governance”, commented Moira Van Der Westhuizen, Group Risk and Audit Manager of Grit Group.
Paperless and highly secure, the solution DiliTrust Exec provides an innovative response to the current challenges faced by directors and corporate secretaries in terms of corporate governance. “The amount of information that goes into these board packs is enormous and it was extremely time-consuming collating the packs“, comments Moira Van Der Westhuizen.“The company is working on endeavours to protect the environment and saving on printing is definitely a start.” She added: “Another very important aspect of using DilTrust Exec centres around its data security, as we are no longer printing our packs or emailing them.”
The main factor influencing the selection of DiliTrust Exec by the client was how seamless it is to organise board and committee meetings. Other key factors in Grit Group’s choice to select DiliTrust Exec related to how it is contributing to greener governance as well as the security offered by the platform. The board portal meets the highest international standards of information security, notably with its ISO 27001 ceritfication. Data is encrypted while stored with the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with a 256-bit key. Grit Group board members can share and receive documents securely, anywhere in the world, online and offline.
“By adopting DiliTrust Exec, Grit Group Real Estate Income Group Limited is affirming our position as a leader in secure digital governance solutions.” Yacine Gouich, Regional Director of DiliTrust MEA, commented.
