Do you have the policies you need in place?
In this increasingly regulated world, there is an expectation (and in some cases a legal requirement) for financial service providers to have multiple written policies and procedures in place to document how they do business.
Here, consultant Jeunesse Meldrum lists the policies typically found in a well-governed funds management business which demonstrate best practice and good corporate governance.
