Board of Directors

ALFI is governed by a board of directors (Board of Directors or Board), elected by members of the association for a period of two years. ALFI’s 24 board members are investment management industry leaders, reflecting the broad range of nationalities present in the financial centre and an even broader range of companies and servicing industries active in the sector. Together, the Board brings a wealth of experience to ALFI, while individual board members are active in ALFI’s various technical committees and regularly represent ALFI at seminars and conferences around the world. The Board decides on the creation and dissolution of technical committees and forums as well as the designation of its chairpersons.
