Independent non-executive Directorial Services
Hedge Funds and Investment Management Companies established in the Cayman Islands often require independent non-executive directors on the board to oversee the activities of the company whilst ensuring 'mind and management' is maintained offshore. This can be for a variety of reasons, including taxation, stock exchange listing requirements and fee deferral. The majority of hedge funds established in the Cayman Islands are usually formed as corporate vehicles, although unit trusts and exempted limited partnerships can also be used. We have a wealth of knowledge about the formation and continuing administration of all entity structures.
We offer individual directors, corporate directors and corporate trustees. We pride ourselves on a prompt and value-added service that sets us apart from our competitors. This in turn allows arrangers to provide effective assistance that is expected of them.
In limited circumstances Genesis Trust is willing to act as corporate director of asset holding companies. Such services are normally limited to situations where the asset holding company is held by a Cayman Islands Trust for which we act as Trustee.
