To meet corporate governance requirements Carne can support key stakeholders by ensuring that board meetings are properly documented and all relevant stakeholders are kept fully informed.
Our company secretarial services provide the detailed documentary support that fund boards require to meet the increasingly stringent requirements of regulatory and tax authorities as well as the needs of investors. Highly trained Carne consultants can assist with the preparation of board agendas, take minutes, follow up on matters arising and maintain records.
We also regularly assist with EGMs, AGMs and shareholder meetings, issuing notices of meetings, collating proxy forms and ensuring sufficient votes have been received to hold meetings. We are often instructed to complete filings relevant to fund jurisdictions and stock exchange listings.
Carne also provides its boards with our Investment Funds Office portal, an online customisable resource delivering real time and secure access to an extensive library of board and fund-related documentation, which can be accessed remotely wherever a director may be travelling.
Our close links with the investor community means we are fully-informed with the latest best practice in terms of fund governance and can carry out regular fund governance reviews for clients to ensure they will meet these standards.
