Directors you can depend on
While you may have the expertise to run your own funds, there are real benefits to be had from bringing in knowledgeable board directors to help with oversight, governance and best practice.
Our director services
While investment managers may be at the sharp end of your funds, the board of directors plays a critical role in ensuring oversight of the fund’s operations. And as global rules around substance and tax residency become more stringent, having directors on the ground where your funds are domiciled is essential.
Opening an office and employing a director to meet these requirements can be expensive, whereas using a third-party is not only cost-effective but can bring a host of jurisdictional expertise to the table.
We can provide highly experienced directors to the board of your alternative investment funds, as well as giving you access to an extensive portfolio of independent directors through our broad network of contacts.
Our directors are able to support you in the following ways:
- Ongoing review and assessment of operations, promotion plans, target markets and the investor profile
- Regular review of financial and performance reports
- Review and approval of annual audited financial statements and related documents
- A culture of sharing knowledge, insight, experience and best practices in order to bring significant added value to your operations
- Provision of regulatory and industry updates
- Handling ad-hoc fund-related issues requiring director decisions
- Virtual and in-person attendance of board meetings
- Response to investor due diligence requests
- Oversight of the fund’s management and operations providing investor protection and ensuring that all decisions and actions made are in the best interests of the fund
