Odd Lots, October 8, 1999

Reported by Hayley Green

Bored Boards
From The Wall Street Journal
Chicago-based consulting firm Schlindwein Associates ranked 138 mutual fund boards, in what is believed to be the first rigorous evaluation of fund-board performance. Each board's level of independence was assessed by counting the number of outside directors. Compensation was also taken into account, with lower scores going to boards that got paid large sums for supervising small numbers of funds with less asset bases. Vanguard, Alliance, Templeton, American and Janus, plus a bunch of little known fund groups ranked in the top 20. The top scorer was the board of the $8-billion-in-assets Nicholas Funds.

John Bogle Jr., son of Vanguard Group founder John C. Bogle, is launching the first mutual fund of his new firm, Bogle Investment Management, effective Monday.
