I support the proposed changes that would provide for at the very least 90% of the funds' board be made up of persons independent of the fund manager/advisors. Moreover, the chair of the board should always be held by an independent member. This independent group of board members should further consist of a committee that exclusively monitours the funds fees and operating cost. Additionally, should be in a position to negotiate appropriate changes with the fund managers as required.
