Simon Hynes has joined the Fund Boards Council as a senior adviser, responsible for developing offerings for fund governance professionals in Europe.
As part of the role, he will focus on the growth of FBC’s distributor oversight and product governance programmes.
Hynes said: “Providing insight into the work of European fund regulators particularly sparked my enthusiasm for sharing best practice in fund governance. Having robust governance, and being able to demonstrate this, is key the ability to impact the provision of better value to investors and regulatory compliance.”
Prior to joining FBC, Hynes worked in leadership and board roles at Jupiter and Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM). Since 2020, Hynes has also served as non-executive director at NedGroup Investments.
Shiv Taneja, CEO of Fund Boards Council, said: “In his advisory role, Simon will be a key asset to our executive team, with his deep experience in cross-border markets of Europe. It dovetails well with growing cross-border interest in FBC’s investment governance activities and the development of our distributor and product governance programmes.”
