On Thursday 3rd October, Fund Boards Council held the first of its new Governance Series seminars. These half-day seminars aim to give attendees the chance to drill down into the details of a particular aspect of governance with leading academics and experts in their field.
For the inaugural Governance Series seminar, hosted by Schroders and chaired by industry veteran, Philip Warland, we were delighted to welcome Dr Margaret Cullen, CEO and Academic Director at the Certified Investment Fund Director Institute, to discuss with attendees whether a Director can serve multiple masters.
The seminar was attended by over 50 aspiring and incumbent independent directors (iNEDs) as well as well as fund board directors and chairs at leading asset managers with funds authorised in the UK. Members can access all the materials from the event via the Member Portal.
