Funds Governance

The drive towards greater board and director responsibility, oversight and stewardship have become a major focus for many fund and management company boards operating within Ireland’s financial services industry. Effective board governance poses a particular challenge in the Irish funds sector, where compliance obligations may be multi-jurisdictional.
Did you know that the Alternative Investment Funds Directive 2014 and new supervision and enforcement provisions in the 2013 Central Bank of Ireland Act, advocates the value of independently validating the governance policies and structures for fund boards and related management company frameworks?
