3.ROLE AND DUTIES
3.1As a non-executive director you shall have the same general legal responsibilities to the Company as any other director. The Board as a whole is collectively responsible for the affairs of the Company. The Board's role is to:
(a)provide leadership of the Company within a framework of prudent and effective controls which enable risk to be assessed and managed;
(b)set the Company's strategic aims, ensure that the necessary financial and human resources are in place for the Company to meet its objectives, and review management performance; and

3.2All directors must act in the way they consider, in good faith, in the interests of the Company as a whole. In doing so, as a director, you must have regard (among other matters) to:
(a)the likely consequences of any decision in the long term;
(b)the interests of the Company's employees;
(c)the need to foster the Company's business relationships with suppliers, customers and others;
(d)the impact of the Company's operations on the community and the environment;
(e)the desirability of the Company maintaining a reputation for high standards of business conduct; and
(f)the need to act fairly as between the members of the Company.
3.3In your role as Chair and a non-executive director, you shall also be required to:
(a)lead the Board of the Company;
(b)encourage critical discussion and challenge mindsets;
(c)promote effective communication between executive and non-executive directors;
(d)attend and chair board meetings;
(e)constructively challenge and contribute to the development of strategy;
(f)scrutinise the performance of management in meeting agreed goals and objectives and monitor the reporting of performance;
(g)satisfy yourself that financial information is accurate and that financial controls and systems of risk management are robust and defensible;
(h)have a role in appointments and in succession planning, where applicable;
(i)at all times comply with the Articles of the Company;
(j)abide by your statutory, fiduciary or common-law duties as a director of the Company, including any duties or obligations which are or which may be imposed by relevant regulatory authorities from time to time;
(k)diligently perform your duties and use your best endeavours to promote, protect, develop and extend the business of the Company;
(l)immediately report your own wrongdoing or the wrongdoing or proposed wrongdoing of any employee or other director of the Company of which you become aware to the Head of Compliance of the Company; and
(m)inform the Company Secretary if you intend to take on any additional directorships other than those already noted.
3.4You represent and warrant to the Company that you are not engaged in, or currently intending to engage in, any lawsuit or other legal or administrative proceedings or arbitration which would adversely affect, in any material respect, your ability to perform your obligations hereunder and to the best of your knowledge, information and belief, no such litigation or arbitration is pending or threatened against you.
3.5You shall be entitled to request relevant information about the Company's affairs as is reasonably necessary in order to enable you to discharge your duties.
From the date of your appointment as non-executive director and Chair, you shall be paid annual fees totalling one hundred sixty thousand euro (€160,000) in respect of your appointments, €100,000 (one hundred thousand euro) of which is attributable to your role as non-executive director of the Company and €60,000 (sixty thousand euro) of which is attributable to your role as Chair of the Board. These annual fees will be prorated for the portion of the calendar year in which you are appointed to the Board as a non-executive director and the calendar year you are appointed as Chair, respectively, and shall be paid in equal instalments monthly in arrears after deduction of any taxes and other amounts that are required by law. The Company shall reimburse you for all reasonable and properly documented expenses that you incur in performing the duties of your office.
5.INDEPENDENT LEGAL ADVICE
In some circumstances you may consider that you need professional advice in the furtherance of your duties as a director and it may be appropriate for you to seek advice from independent advisors at the Company's expense. In these circumstances you should notify the General Counsel, EMEA in advance of seeking advice so that it can be discussed whether it is appropriate to obtain such advice and the procedure for doing so.
6.1It is accepted and acknowledged that you have business interests other than those of the Company and have declared any conflicts that are apparent at present. If you become aware of any potential conflicts of interest, these should be disclosed to the Chief Executive Officer and Company Secretary as soon as you become aware of them and you should isolate yourself from decision-making on any matter on which there is a conflict.
6.2During your appointment you will not without the prior written consent of the Company, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, undertake any additional directorship appointments or other business or work activity that may conflict with your appointment with the Company. In considering whether to give consent the Company reserves the right at its reasonable discretion to determine what types of activities may be in conflict. Any questions, clarification or doubts regarding other activities by you and potential conflict must be raised with the Company. You also acknowledge and agree that the prior approval of the CBI (and other relevant regulatory authorities) will be required prior to you taking on any other directorships (other than directorships within the Company’s group).
7.1All information acquired prior to and during your appointment is confidential to the Company and should not be disclosed to third parties or used for any reason other than in the interests of the Company, either before, during or following termination of your appointment (by whatever means), without prior written clearance from the Chief Executive Officer or the Company Secretary.
7.2Your attention is also drawn to the requirements under both legislation and regulation as to the disclosure of inside information. Consequently, you should avoid making any statements that might risk a breach of these requirements without prior clearance from the Chief Executive Officer or the Company Secretary.
7.3In line with local regulations and the Bank of America Code of Conduct, the Company acts in compliance with the Ireland Whistleblowing Policy, which sets out the preferred procedure for whistleblowing. Under Irish rules Pre-Approval Controlled Functions (“PCFs”) are required to report certain types of misconduct to the CBI including: (i) information relating to breaches of financial services legislation; or (ii) the destruction or concealment of relevant evidence related to such breaches. The affirmative obligations on PCFs to
disclose this information to the CBI applies except where: (i) the report would lead to self- incrimination; or (ii) where the information has already been disclosed to the CBI. Failure by a PCF to disclose such contraventions could result in an investigation by the CBI into the PCF.
The performance of individual directors and the whole Board is evaluated annually. If, in the interim, there are any matters which cause you concern about your role you should discuss them with the Chair of the Nominations Committee as soon as possible.
The details of your right to indemnification as a director of the Company are contained in Article VIII of the bylaws of the Bank of America Corporation, a copy of which you have already been provided with. The Company routinely receives requests from regulatory authorities to provide information in relation to their inquiries and should you become the subject of or party to any investigation by the CBI or any other regulatory authority, the Company has policies and processes in place to collate and safeguard any documentation held by the Company that it may be required to produce and will provide such additional support and assistance as is reasonable in all the circumstances, subject to any applicable legal or regulatory duties.
The Company has directors' and officers' liability insurance and it intends to maintain such cover for the full term of your appointment. You will be notified on each renewal date that the policy has been renewed and advised of any material change in coverage.
11.THIRD PARTY RIGHTS
No person other than you and the Company shall have any rights under this letter and the terms of this letter shall not be enforceable by any person other than you and the Company.
12.1Your appointment with the Company and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Ireland and you and the Company irrevocably agree that the courts of Ireland shall have non-exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim that arises out of or in connection with this appointment or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims).
12.2This letter constitutes the entire terms and conditions of your appointment and supersedes all previous discussions, correspondence, negotiations, arrangements, understandings and agreements between you and the Company relating to its subject matter.
Please indicate your acceptance of these terms by signing and returning one copy of this letter to Sarah McGuinness, Company Secretary, at Bank of America Europe, [***], Ireland.
