Fund board ratings

The NED is consulting with subscribers on introducing a rating system for fund boards in 2018. It has made progress on the criteria to be used for the ratings since our November issue and we would like to hear from all other interested parties by late January.

The reaction to this initiative has been positive but cautious. Most of the feedback received to date has focussed on how this might be done and what the point of rating fund boards would be.

As we have a number of questions along these lines we thought it would be a good idea to give readers more on this now, even though it is still early days in this consultation period.

For more on this topic see the December issue of The NED.
