Commenting on Ryanair’s announcement on a new Group structure, Ashley Hamilton Claxton, head of responsible investment at Royal London Asset Management, said:

“We’ve had longstanding concerns about governance at Ryanair, which has been compounded by recent operational issues and ongoing labour unrest. While we welcome some of the governance changes announced this week, we don’t think they go far enough.

“We would like to see the new chairman undertake a comprehensive board review with a view to putting in stronger governance standards to support the growth plans of the business.”

RLAM holds 366,258 shares circa. £3.7m / 0.03%
