PLDRM is a wholly owned subsidiary of Prologis and governed by its own board of directors’ meetings. The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is an ultimate decision-maker of PLDRM, and underneath the CEO's supervision are three divisions that manage various corporate functions of PLDRM: the Investment & Operations Division; the Financial Planning/Investor & Public Relations Division; and, the General Administration & Accounting Division.
In addition, there are two committees which govern certain areas of PLDRM’s corporate actions in connection with its asset management functions.

PLDRM’s Risk Management
PLDRM’s risk management system is operated through a combination of multiple platforms. The “Risk Management Rules” define the fundamental framework of PLDRM’s risk management, attempting to maintain high levels of risk control that ultimately secure the soundness of PLDRM’s management. PLDRM’s board of directors is ultimately responsible for and supervises PLDRM’s risk management. The Compliance Officer is in charge of organizing risk control and monitoring operations. The head of each division is responsible for the intra-divisional risk control and management. Periodically, the status of PLDRM’s risk management is reported to NPR’s board of directors. Also, PLDRM conducts its own internal audit annually and reports the results to NPR’s board of directors.
