Fund governance by jurisdiction

The NED publishes its first comparative review of the quality of alternative fund boards across EU and offshore fund jurisdictions in this issue. It shows that there are some significant differences in fund governance standards by domicile.

This begs the question: should there still be as much variance (both in standards and in regulatory rules) as there is today? Fund governance is probably the last remaining area of the asset management industry where significant local differences still apply. Standards are now pretty much uniform in all the other main areas of the asset management – in EU and offshore jurisdictions, let alone on the portfolio management side of the business in the UK, US and elsewhere.
