An independent board of directors is a unique and important benefit of investment companies which sets them apart from their competitors in the funds world.

What directors say
“I’ve been able to surround myself with creative people from all walks of life, which has fired my imagination and allowed me to achieve career goals I may not otherwise have set.”

“A broader range of backgrounds in the boardroom improves the debate, and I would like to think that sometimes my naïve questions aren’t as irrelevant as they first seem.”
