Management Rights 101: Frequently Asked Questions

There are so many management rights questions. Our experts Frank Higginson and Chris Irons answer them in this webinar.


Top 3 Takeaways from the Management Rights FAQ Webinar:


Not Robots

MR holders are human. They do not robotically perform tasks 24/7 at the press of a button. This is not the way we expect committees to function, so we should not expect that of a MR holder.

Respect Helps!

Do unto others. Engage with MR holders as you would like to be engaged with. MR holders need to do the same in reverse. Respect for each other’s roles, positions and contexts goes a long way to establishing a satisfying working relationship.

Eyes On The Prize

Whether you are an owner, committee member or MR holder, your end game is the same: protecting the substantial investment you have made in the scheme, and ideally, growing its value. So even if you do not personally like someone, you will still share a common goal, and that is essential in making things work.
