Annoucements Three Maples Partners Named Among "50 Leading Women in Hedge Funds"

25 Sep 2019

The Hedge Fund Journal recently released its 2019 50 Leading Women in Hedge Funds report, naming some of the world's highest rated individuals.  Among the prestigious list of industry experts, three partners from Maples and Calder, the Maples Group's law firm, were honoured: Gwyneth Rees, Harjit Kaur and Heidi de Vries.

Now in its seventh year, the report highlights women leading all verticals in hedge funds, allocators to hedge funds and associated service providers.  The report features portfolio managers, C-suite roles, general counsel, HR professionals, sales, marketing and business development professionals and investor relations professionals.

Notably, Gwyneth was the only Cayman Islands-based lawyer named in the report, while Harjit and Heidi's inclusion follows closely their recent promotions as co-head of the firm's London Funds & Investment Management team and Joint Managing Partner of the London office, respectively.

Gwyneth, Heidi and Harjit join fellow partner, Jo Cunningham, who received the accolade in 2015.

The Maples Group strives to foster a culture that values diverse perspectives and is committed to creating an inclusive and supportive working environment.  The Group is proud to have a workforce of nearly 60% women represented in each part of the business and has memberships to professional development organisations, such as 100 Women in Finance and the 30% Club.

"We are extremely proud of Gwyneth, Harjit and Heidi and their inclusion in this prestigious report," commented Jon Fowler, Global Head of the law firm's Funds & Investment Management practice.  "This inclusion is testament to the calibre of their legal expertise in the funds industry and is a well-earned recognition."

In celebration of the 2019 recipients, Hedge Fund Journal planned two events, one on 19 September at the Cotillion Room at the Pierre in New York and the other on 24 September at the Avenue in London.

In January 2019, Maples and Calder and MaplesFS consolidated their offerings under a single brand, now called the Maples Group, bringing together their internationally recognised offerings to address demand from clients for a complete and seamless service to the industry.
