In this session, we speak to leading fund governance practitioners – both board directors themselves and those involved in board evaluation – to examine the key attributes and characteristics of an effective fund board. In this highly practical session, the panel will discuss the types of benchmarks and criteria that firms are using to determine the effectiveness of its fund board, explore the key areas that boards need to address in order to be considered ‘high performing’ and examine the warning signs that chairs and board directors should be looking out for. Attendees at this first FBC Board Effectiveness meeting will come away with practical considerations and steps to take back to their own boards.
This session forms part of Fund Boards Council’s brand-new series of events and content focused on the practical steps fund board directors can take to ensure both they personally and the board collectively are operating as effectively as possible. The FBC Board Effectiveness series will explore effective structure and composition of these boards, how to optimise the processes that support the running of the board and the behaviours of effective boards and the executive teams that surround them.
