Disclosure of a Corporate Opportunity

Generally, a corporate director breaches the duty of loyalty if she seizes a business opportunity for herself that the corporation was financially capable of undertaking or in which the corporation had a reasonable interest or expectancy. Additionally, the director’s loyalty is called into question if she takes personal advantage of a business opportunity that was in line with the corporation’s business.

Exchange-Traded Funds

Exchange-traded funds are open-ended registered investment companies regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Investment Company Act of 1940. The Securities and Exchange Commission has exempted exchange-traded funds from regulatory requirements in order to allow secondary trading on national exchanges of shares in exchange-traded funds.

Reliance on Third-Party Advice or Information

The duty of care requires directors to act in good faith and in a manner that they reasonably believe is in the best interest of the corporation. Directors must exercise informed business judgment and be attentive to the corporation’s affairs. In order to do so, directors are required to keep themselves informed of all material information that is reasonably available to them before making a business decision. Directors also must use care when performing their duties.

Responsibilities of Corporate Directors and Officers

Boards of directors and officers of corporations have distinct functions. Generally, directors set corporate policy while officers carry out that policy.
