From the Editor...


We're back from our August publishing pause and ready to dive into the issues on mutual fund boards' agendas through the end of this year. Summer's not quite (officially) over yet, but it's getting close to autumn and fourth-quarter tasks. We're right here with you, so drop us a line if there's something you want us to cover or just want to chat about. 


In the past week since returning, we've brought you exclusive data on independent mutual fund director pay, as laid out in the 2022 Directors Practices Study from Independent Directors Council. Board members again saw an increase in pay in 2021, though the year-over-year bump was modest. There's a lot of useful information in our exclusive story, so don't miss it. 


We also brought you news of new leadership at Invesco Funds, a board that has experienced a ton of change in the last several years. We're wishing Chris Wilson luck in his post-fund industry life and welcoming the new independent chair, Beth Ann Brown. 


Finally, we published our latest PDF archive of FBV stories, this one covering both July and August. Be sure to download it for future reference, as there are some really good stories in there!


Please note that we are always looking for new Viewpoints writers. Please email or call me (301-384-1877) if you have an idea you'd like to cover. These contributed articles are not behind our paywall, and authors are free to share them with friends, family, peers, clients, whomever. It's a great way to get your voice into the mix, and a great benefit to our readers to hear new points of view. Think about it. 


For now,


Hillary Jackson, founding editor
