On 17 November 2010, the Hedge Fund Standards Board (HFSB) published a press release announcing the launch of an investor chapter.

The aim of the chapter is to strengthen the role and influence of investors in the HFSB's standard-setting process. The chapter comprises 30 investors from Europe, Asia and North America, including pension schemes, fund of funds managers and a sovereign wealth fund.

More information about the investor chapter, including an application form, is available on the HFSB website.
