Corporate Governance System
Board of Directors
The Board of Directors makes major management decisions and supervises operational execution. To further strengthen management functions, Dai-ichi Life has assigned Outside Directors with a position that is independent from operational execution. As a general rule, the Board of Directors is held more than once in three months and may also be held on an ad-hoc basis as required.

Dai-ichi Life has established an Executive Officer System to separate decision-making and auditing functions from operational execution and to strengthen these functions. Executive officers are assigned by the Board of Directors to execute operations based on the responsibilities stipulated by decisions by the Board of Directors. An Executive Management Board composed of the president and executive officers designated by the president is held twice a month as a general rule to deliberate important management and operational execution issues.
