Corporate Governance


Message from Mark T. Bertolini, Chairman, CEO and President, Aetna

Aetna's reputation for excellence and integrity is one of our company's most valuable assets. We have earned this reputation over the last 150 years by delivering quality products and services, and by adhering to the highest standards of business conduct. By having in place sound corporate governance principles, we help ensure our standards of excellence, integrity and accountability are applied to all aspects of our operations.

These principles are reflected in the structure and composition of our Board of Directors and in our Committee Charters, and are reinforced through Aetna's Code of Conduct, which applies to every employee and to our Directors.

We believe sound corporate governance principles are good for our business, the industry, the competitive marketplace and for all of those who place their trust in us.

Sound corporate governance principles help ensure our standards of excellence, integrity and accountability are applied to all aspects of our operations.
