Independent Directors Council (IDC) 2017 Fund Directors Conference

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

Given the rapidly changing environment for funds—from new regulatory requirements to an evolving marketplace—it’s more important than ever for independent fund directors to stay on top of current issues. IDC’s 2017 Fund Directors Conference, held October 23–25, 2017, helped attendees gain insights into the implications of the wide-ranging changes facing funds and their boards.

This event provided the latest information while offering attendees opportunities to meet other directors, network, and discuss issues and governance practices.  Morgan Lewis partner W. John McGuire participated as a panelist on the topic of “ETFs” which discussed an overview of how ETFs operate, board oversight responsibilities, and ETF trends.
