ILA & PwC Fund Governance Survey 

"We present the results of our research, which takes an in-depth look at governance practices within management companies and investment funds domiciled in Luxembourg. Our findings confirm continued progress in governance practices, especially as regards transparency, the appointment of independent directors, the formation of committees, and the identification and elimination of conflicts of interest. 

Our aim in preparing this survey is to provide boards with insight as to current best practices and to further strengthen the overall governance framework surrounding the fund industry in Luxembourg."
