Advisory Board

The advisory board is a body that provides non-binding strategic advice to the management team of Archipelago Partners. Unlike the Board of Directors, the advisory board does not have authority to vote on corporate matters or bear legal fiduciary responsibilities.

The advisory board members provide high-level advice and network in the industry and non-biased information and recommendations to the management team. The board has a good understanding of the investment management business, market and industry trends and provide “wise counsel” on issues raised by the management team and provide unbiased insights and ideas from a third point-of-view, encourage and support the exploration of new ideas and act as a resource for the company.

Advisory board members have distinctive knowledge on different aspects of the investment management industry and have the combination of appropriate skills that are of use to Archipelago Partners and will help to propel the business. Meetings with advisory board members take place on a request basis and individually with the management team.
