Watch leading industry experts – both fund managers and iNEDs – discuss key fund board governance topics.
Fund Boards Council was delighted recently to sit down with Henrietta Jowitt, Deputy Director General of the CBI, to discuss a range of fund board governance topics.
With several high profile board roles under her belt and expertise spanning asset management, Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) and professional services, Henrietta outlines in the video why she believes there are benefits to asset managers considering prospective iNEDs from outside the industry.
In the video, she discusses how those from outside asset management can bring useful perspective and best practice on topics as seemingly industry-specific as Assessment of Value.

In this video, Philip discusses how fund board governance has changed over the years, what UK fund boards can learn from the experience of other jurisdictions who’ve been through similar changes and how asset managers can ensure that Assessment of Value (AoV) statements can help investors effectively compare between asset managers.
