The advisory board is a body that provides non-binding strategic advice to the portfolio management team. Unlike the Board of Directors, the advisory board does not have authority to vote on corporate matters or bear legal fiduciary responsibilities.
The advisory board members provide high-level advice and network in the industry and non-biased information and recommendations to the portfolio management team. The board has a good understanding of the business, market, external managers and industry trends and provide “wise counsel” on issues raised by the portfolio management team and provide unbiased insights and ideas from a third point-of-view, encourage and support the exploration of new ideas and act as a resource for the company. The advisory board members are there to give focus to and sometimes challenge research and analytics work being done in the company, thus avoiding groupthink and giving direction on big picture issues. The primary function of the advisory board is to offer relevant input as regards idea generation and screening of new external managers.
Advisory board members have distinctive knowledge on different aspects of the industry and have the combination of appropriate skills that are of use to the portfolio managers and will help to propel the business. Meetings with advisory board members take place on a request basis and individually with the portfolio management team.
