In the constantly evolving world of fund governance, it appears that the role of one key participant remains poorly understood by many fund board directors – that of the depositary. Could boards be missing an important opportunity to make more effective use of the independent data and insights that their depositary provides?

In this final session of FBC’s iNED Bootcamp 2021, Shiv Taneja is joined by funds lawyer and fund board independent director, Kirstene Baillie and Mark Crathern, Head of NatWest Trustee and Depositary Services to examine how the relationship between depositary and fund board is changing and the opportunities for depositaries to step out of the shadows and more actively engage with directors – both executive and independent – to better support them as they discharge their fund governance responsibilities.
