Gain ValuABLE PERSPECTIVES

Benefits of FBC membership

By joining FBC, members gain valuable perspectives and assurance from an external and independent organisation with deep experience and expertise in fund governance; access to the collective insight and wisdom of our diverse fund board membership base and examples of good fund governance practice from the wider industry; and the opportunity to align themselves to a powerful advocate for the industry’s efforts to improve transparency, value and governance on behalf of investors.
Access to Highly relevant perspectives

Why join?

Fund boards have a fiduciary responsibility to effectively oversee a wide range of issues and risks on behalf of investors, often while also grappling with complex commercial dynamics of their wider firm or group of companies. Whilst some will be well supported with internal counsel, many find that being part of a members’ organisation like FBC gives them access to highly relevant external perspectives, assurance and validation that feeds into the fund governance work they are doing.
