Of the eleven directors, seven (7) are independent and are recommended by the Governance and Ethics Committee. The remaining four (4) are elected from a list of candidates following a public call for nominations.

One share, one vote

All holders of Class A, Series 1 and 2 shares, who are registered as shareholders in the Fonds’ shares register at the closing date of such register are entitled to vote, either in person or by proxy. Each shareholder is entitled to one (1) vote for each fully paid up voting share registered in his or her name for each agenda item to be voted.
