This FCA-designated senior manager function is currently held by over 70 individuals appointed as chairs of fund boards of UK authorised fund managers, whose role has grown markedly from supervising a product subsidiary regulated entity to one that also includes distribution governance, ESG/sustainability, operations, conduct and culture, to name a few.
Drawing on insights from the recently released FBC Fund Board Composition database, this hour-long webinar will explore this evolving role of the chair, the impact of various regulatory intervention including the seminal Asset Management Market Study, and also reflect on some of the key aspects of what makes for a successful fund board chair.
FBC’s CEO, Shiv Taneja, will be joined by four panellists for an initial discussion:
• Laurence Mumford from M&G
• Carole Judd from BNY Mellon
• Phil Wagstaff from Jupiter
• Nicola Palios from Thesis
The floor will then be open for questions.
