Board & Committees

The DSI Foundation was created by the investment sector to address the sector’s need for strict self-regulation. Collaboration with all of the stakeholders in the sector is therefore extremely important to DSI. It helps us keep up with developments and opinions among the parties we were founded to serve. That collaboration is therefore embedded in the organisation’s structure, with a Board of Directors and a variety of committees.
