It was rewarding to be a member of the “Mutual Fund Board of the Future” panel at the Mutual Fund Directors Forum’s annual Fund Governance & Regulatory Insights Conference with former client and Morningstar Funds Lead Independent Director Theresa Hamacher, Jay Keeshan, and David Mahaffey. There was some great feedback and discussion in the breakout sessions about independent directors taking more active ownership for the accelerating evolution of board skills, diversity, culture, teamwork, and sourcing outside experts. Our slides and recent blog cover many of the issues that were discussed. Thanks again to the fabulous staff of the Forum, Susan Wyderko, CEO, and Carolyn McPhillips, Senior Counsel, for including me.
