In an article published by Fund Board Views on April 10 titled Do fund directors need board-dedicated email, devices?asset management partner Paulita Pike discusses the importance for mutual fund directors to use board-dedicated email and devices. In the piece Ms. Pike outlines that she advises the boards with which she works to set up board-dedicated email addresses and, more importantly, to use the adviser-issued iPad only for board-related work—even if carrying two iPads is a hassle. "I don't think it's widely done, [but] I also don't know if directors understand what the implications are of using a personal email address," she told Fund Board Views. "If there's a lawsuit and there's discovery of director emails, there's a request for any and all correspondence."
