Our directors are asset managers from the alternative investment industry. They are intimately aware of the difficulties facing hedge fund investors - the constraints of time, transparency and complication creating risks that can range from style drift to fraud.
Each of our directors is an investment professional, with integrity and a reputation. They are able to understand the underlying portfolio and strategy, and crucially they can also stand up to the management if they perceive that investors’ interests are being compromised. They act as your eyes and ears within the fund, capable of delivering a professional standard of governance and fiduciary responsibility.
carefully constrains and monitors the roles our directors accept.
We disagree strongly with the concept that directors can accept
roles on hundreds of boards and perform an adequate service.
We limit our directors to a strict maximum of 15 fund relationships
each, and usually fewer.
We screen all funds who approach us and stipulate minimum levels of transparency and cooperation before we agree to accept a position. We will reject directorship roles where we feel that, for any reason, we would be unable to deliver a less than professional fiduciary service.
HedgeDirector provides fund investors with an expert, internal advocate who has their best interests firmly in mind. They can take confidence that they are dealing with a hedge fund prepared to deliver higher standards of governance and to treat its investors with professionalism and respect.
