Directorship Services - Investment Funds
Governance issues have come to the forefront in the investment funds world as a result of the liquidity crisis of 2008/9. Investors are increasingly demanding that independent directors serve on the boards of the funds in which they invest. Maples Fiduciary is able to offer qualified, seasoned professionals to act on these boards. We are able to provide either the entire board or, alternatively, a single independent director to sit on a wider board which may include directors from the investment manager, the administrator or another independent director organisation.
What sets us apart from the competition? There are three main factors. First, the quality and quantity of our professional staff. We have more than 100 people employed within our fiduciary group across nine jurisdictions, of which over a quarter have a professional designation. Second, we have developed policies, procedures and systems which are specific to this market and are supported by a dedicated team of operational, information technology, internal audit and compliance professionals. Third, we have considerable experience across a broad range of structures which enables us to add value to the structuring process and, to the extent necessary, tailor our offering to meet the client company’s specific requirements.
