The iNED Bootcamp will begin on Monday the 19th of April, with a live session entitled, The State of Investment Fund Governance in 2021 where the results of the FBC iNED Survey and Report will be discussed. “There is a focus in the 2021 report on culture, diversity and inclusion. Not only is this reflective of the corporate and investment governance zeitgeist, but something that FBC iNEDs specifically highlighted as needing to be better explored”, remarked Shiv Taneja, FBC’s CEO. Additional highlights of the report include a summary analysis of iNEDs’ views on fund board governance and oversight, effectiveness and implementation of Assessment of Value (AoV) and compensation.
Catherine Battershill, FBC’s managing director added: “The results of the iNED Survey and Report will complement the on-demand content and additional live session that will conclude FBC’s iNED Bootcamp on the 22nd of April.” Topics of interest to professionals involved in fund governance include: perspectives on cross border fund governance, assessing value in fund ranges in Europe, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing, practitioners’ views of liquidity risk management and the effective use of the depositary.”
