The governance arrangements of investment funds seek to address conflicts of interest that can arise between the manager, the funds that they manage and the investors in those funds. Fund governance has become an area of increased investor scrutiny and regulatory attention in recent years. The purpose of the HFSB Standardised Board Agenda is to provide an overview of issues and topics covered in a fund board meeting.
The Standardised Board Agenda was developed by the HFSB in collaboration with investors, managers and fund directors. The agenda serves as a guide and should be tailored to the specific characteristics of the fund. The Standardised Board Agenda is updated from time to time.
