Do you have written policies and procedures?
How do you manage risks?
Do you have a designated risk manager?
Do you include risk limits in your guidelines?
What are your backup and recovery plans?
How do you define leverage?
What is the type of your borrowing - long term or short term?
What is your attitude towards transparency?
