Conference - Audit Committee for Fund
Description
During this conference, we will have the great pleasure to introduce the new guide 'ILA Audit Committee Guide for Boards of Luxembourg Investment Funds and Management Companies'. The conference aims at presenting and discussing current audit and accounting challenges that Fund and Management Company Board are faced with, and the role that Audit Committees can play.

The question of whether to set up board committees (including Audit Committees) as a measure to reinforce good corporate governance, is increasingly relevant, as the fund industry has increased in size and complexity and as new regulations have expanded directors’ duties. Developments in audit legislation that are applicable to public interest entities in Europe as well as developments in auditing standards that are applicable to the audits of listed entities requiring an expanded audit report have also put the spotlight on the importance of the Audit Committee’s role in strengthening confidence in the statutory audit and in financial information as a whole.

While, the decision whether to establish an Audit Committee for investment funds and management companies remains voluntary in Luxembourg, this guide is designed to assist fund and management company Board of directors in evaluating whether it may be appropriate to establish an Audit Committee, determining how it should function, and in defining its role to best support the full Board in fulfilling its duties.

Audit Committees should be able to apply this guide in a pragmatic and practical manner to the situation of their particular fund or management company.
