The Committee draws on the expertise of external independent specialists for benchmarking, advice on best practice and to confirm that a well-governed process is applied. In accordance with the Remuneration Policy which states that the remuneration advisers should be reviewed every three years. A review took place in 2020 which resulted in Deloitte being awarded the role. Since March 2020 Deloitte has continued to advise the Committee.
