Fund Board Effectiveness – Purpose and Structure
Digital Meeting: 1-2pm, 21 June 2022
This event will be the first in a series providing the findings and insights from our fund board effectiveness barometer research looking at key aspects of Fund Board Effectiveness.
The first study in the series will explore the board’s purpose – how it is defined and articulated and what firms are doing to ensure it is well understood within the wider organisation. It will also examine questions around board structure – how effectively the board operates within the context of the wider firm’s governance structure and look at how these boards’ structures are evolving, for example the extent to which the industry is moving towards greater independence on fund boards.
About the FBC Fund board effectiveness barometer
The FBC fund board effectiveness barometer is a series of in-depth surveys and focus groups designed to provide a valuable source of peer insight into the key aspects of fund board effectiveness. Over the course of the year, we will be examining topics including Fund Board Purpose, Culture and Behaviours, Structure and Composition, Board Process and Assurance and Monitoring. These surveys will canvass views from executive and independent directors in the UK and across Europe, drawing on their experiences at the sharp end of fund board governance to explore examples of good practice in the industry. The survey results, ‘the barometer’, and accompanying analysis, will be available to FBC corporate members in a series of member meetings and detailed reports, as part of the corporate membership of FBC
