The presence of independent board director is widely considered as a means of protecting the interests of shareholders and other stakeholders

Why I started as an
Independent Board Director

After working in the financial service sector in various oversight related roles for 20 years and mandates in AIF fund boards I wanted to further engage in the success of the UCITS and AIFM brand by helping to contribute to uphold the highest governance standards within fund boards.
