Brandon Horwitz and Laura Edgerton join the team
Fund Boards Council (FBC) is pleased to announce that Brandon Horwitz and Laura Edgerton have joined the FBC team to help drive forward investment governance initiatives to support the organisation’s growing membership base.
Brandon joins as a Senior Adviser to further develop FBC’s Assessment of Value analysis and assurance model for its members. He will also lead work on an exciting new FBC proposition offering bespoke training and coaching for boards and executives.
Brandon is the principal of NomBon Consulting and an experienced actuary and independent director. His keen actuarial eye and extensive regulatory knowledge will be highly valuable as FBC continues to build out the tailored support it offers to fund boards in the UK and across Europe.
Laura Edgerton, a specialist financial marketing consultant, joins FBC as a freelance marketing manager to support the development of its member communications and wider marketing initiatives. Laura brings extensive industry knowledge and marketing experience from her time at multi-national asset management firms such as Manulife Investment Management and MFS.
Announcing the appointments, FBC’s CEO, Shiv Taneja explains: “2021 is shaping up to be another busy and important year in fund governance, for FBC and its members in the UK and across Europe. Fund boards are grappling with multiple demands on their time, increasing public and regulatory scrutiny and the delivery of cornerstone governance initiatives such as a new round of Assessment of Value reporting.”
FBC’s Managing Director, Catherine Battershill adds: “FBC aims to be right there with fund boards as they face these challenges, supporting board directors, collectively and individually, through our growing range of tools, events and services such as board effectiveness reviews, Assessment of Value assurance modelling and bespoke board coaching. Brandon and Laura join us at a crucial point in the development of that support for investment boards and we are delighted that our members will benefit from their skills and expertise.”
