The Fund Governance Association (FGA) has been launched to raise standards of governance in the alternative investment fund industry. It is an association for all those that have an interest in seeing improvements in the governance of this business - including investors, managers, service providers and non-executive directors.
The FGA is a not for profit company, registered in the UK, that is owned by its members. It is independent. The FGA is not connected or allied to any organisation or commercial interest.
The FGA believes that improving governance standards will be of benefit to investors and the industry alike. It will put considerable effort into educating investors and industry participants on the relevance of the issues.
The FGA encourages investors to debate governance questions with other industry participants. Equally those industry participants are able to address topics with investors and other interested parties.
The FGA was started by senior investors, managers, service providers and fund directors that are based in Canada, Cayman Islands, Ireland, Luxembourg, the UK and the US.
