This Committee has responsibility for developing the Financial Services Council's strategies and policies in relation to funds management and capital markets. 

The Committee’s objectives are to:

  • enhance market integrity and efficiency;
  • promote sound corporate governance practices in the funds' management industry;
  • maintain and increase consumer confidence in the funds' management industry; and
  • have oversight of the Investment Expert Group (IEG) which has the responsibility for investigating technical fund management policy issues and developing policy position and submissions for those issues.

The Committee also has oversight of the Financial Services Council's relationship with relevant regulators and government departments that have responsibility for funds management and capital markets, including the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and the Department of Treasury.

The Committee has its own charter and is governed by that charter referred to as the Fund Management Board Committee Terms of Reference.



The Committee comprises two members of the FSC's Board:

  • Bryce Doherty, Head of Australia & New Zealand, UBS Asset Management (Australia) Ltd
  • Jen Driscoll, Chief Executive Officer, AllianceBernstein Australia Limited
