Shiv Taneja is the founder, CEO of Fund Boards Council, a professional members organisation that supports good governance outcomes on investment fund boards in the UK and across Europe. A key distinguishing feature of FBC is the wrap-around engagement and support it provides to its membership: coverage for the whole board (chair, iNEDs and executive directors) as well as those key senior executives, not on the board, but crucial to the success of the investment boards they support.
Shiv leads FBC’s Board Advisory Services, a high-touch, bespoke consultative service focusing around two key governance themes: cost/transparency and board effectiveness.
Shiv has 30 years’ research and consulting experience in and around the global asset management industry, and over the past decade has developed a deep professional interest in corporate and investment fund board governance.
Shiv has degrees in accounting and finance, and is a professional non-executive director, having qualified with the FT-NED, Level 7 Advanced Professional Diploma in 2013.
In addition to his work around investment fund board governance, Shiv is a recognised industry authority, media commentator and regular conference speaker on trends in the global asset management industry, having led and completed numerous large industry-wide studies in the area of market sizing, product development and distribution trends in both the retail and institutional segments of the industry.
