"Board Oversight of Fund Profitability"
Wednesday, May 27th, 2015, 2pm
Fund-by-fund review of advisory profitability remains a pillar of the "Gartenberg" contract renewal process; its importance was reinforced a few years ago by a Supreme Court decision.
Fund directors' required annual assessment of the reasonableness of fund-by-fund profitability, computed on a before marketing, distribution and taxes basis, remains largely an art vs. a science. This MFDF/MPI webinar provides guidance regarding the standards from which independent fund directors can begin their annual judgment regarding the reasonableness of advisor profitability.
