The Conference of Fund Leaders (CFL) is a partnership of the Mutual Fund Directors Forum, the Ira M. Millstein Center for Global Markets and Corporate Ownership at Columbia Law School, and independent leaders of mutual fund boards of trustees.
The CFL is a permanent entity for independent board chairs and lead independent directors of mutual funds in the United States. Through its roundtables, and steering and other committees, the CFL provides a unique opportunity for the independent leaders of fund boards to come together with their peers to discuss governance issues that board leaders and their funds face; proactively present their views on policy matters important to fund investors and independent directors, regulators and lawmakers; and promote research into the value and impact of effective, independent leadership at mutual funds.
