AFM is keen to support Non-Executive Directors in the sector and, whilst they are welcome to attend all our events, we aim to offer activities specifically targeted at Board level, including our:

NED Conference – our showcase annual event for NEDs which features workshops and networking opportunities for NEDs of AFM Member organisations. The 2022 NED Conference will be held in London on 14 June and more information about the agenda will follow soon. (Click here for materials from previous NED Conferences)

NED Roundtable –  a regular, virtual meeting providing new and experienced NEDs with the opportunity to share ideas, experiences and good practice. For more on the roundtable, please contact

AFM NED Toolkit – in April 2019, we launched our revised NED Toolkit, following an extensive rewrite to incorporate AFM’s new Corporate Governance Code and the Senior Managers & Certification Regime. The Toolkit is a long document and we have produced 3 versions:

  • a pdf version of the entire Toolkit, downloadable here
  • a more manageable interactive online version which allows readers to jump to, and download, specific sections
  • a short form, themed version of the toolkit focused on Risk, accessible here: AFM NED toolkit/Risk
