How do you measure an asset manager’s culture? What are the warning signs of an ineffective board? How do you demonstrate effective Board-level oversight? Just three of the questions, along with a whole lot more, that we sought to address at the recent Fund Boards Council’s Governance Series Seminar, hosted by BNY Mellon.
A packed room of more than 50 board directors and aspiring iNEDs engaged in some lively debate, firstly with Luba Nikulina, Global Head of Research at Willis Towers Watson who led a fascinating discussion on the importance of culture in asset management and secondly with Lucy McClements and Richard Crannis who put the group through their paces on the topics of board effectiveness, conduct and culture under SM&CR.
Given the level of interest and insightful debates amongst attendees, these are topics FBC shall be returning to in the coming months!
In the meantime, FBC Individual or Corporate Members can now access the Seminar materials including presentation decks, a summary of the main discussion points and suggested further reading from the Past Events Materials section on their Member Portal.
