Panels at the Policy Conference will explore:
  • Recent SEC Division of Investment Management Initiatives and Fund Directors. This panel will feature an interactive discussion between David Grim, the Director of the Division of Investment Management and fund independent directors.
  • The Evolving Role of the Fund Director. This panel will explore how boards are likely to adapt to meet future challenges as the SEC and others risk pushing boards beyond more traditional conceptions of oversight, fiduciary duty and business judgment. 
  • Mutual Fund Liquidity.  Panelists will discuss current liquidity practices, and challenges that could be presented if the SEC adopts its recent liquidity proposal. 
  • Fund Use of Derivatives.  This panel will examine the realities of how the SEC’s derivatives proposal may impact the fund industry, and the potential impact on board oversight responsibilities.
 
The program will begin at 9 am on Tuesday, March 29 and end on 12 pm on Wednesday, March 30.
