Morgan Lewis partner Andrew J. "Buddy" Donohue will discuss "Conversation: Outlook for the Fund Industry" at this year's Director's Institute.

The Mutual Fund Directors Forum's annual Directors' Institute uses a case study to provide independent directors with a key opportunity to learn from and discuss with both other independent directors and industry experts the most important issues they face in the boardroom today.

Issues the 2012 Directors' Institute will address include:

  • The impact of market volatility on oversight of performance
  • The director's role in understanding the relationship between risk and performance
  • The benefits and drawbacks of complex-wide breakpoints
  • The fine distinctions between closet indexing and true active management
  • Changes in the way portfolio trades are executed
  • The impact of cost cutting and limited resources on both performance and compliance
