Announcements Maples Group Adds Independent Director to Fiduciary Services Team

30 Oct 2019

The Maples Group, a leading service provider offering clients a comprehensive range of legal, fiduciary, fund, regulatory and compliance, and entity formation and management services, has announced the appointment of Kim Bishop as a Vice President and independent director within the fiduciary services team in the Cayman Islands.

Kim brings over 15 years of experience in the financial services industry with a focus on legal services, governance and fund administration. She was most recently a fund administration manager for a large global financial services and investment management firm, providing fiduciary and administration services to a large portfolio of institutional trusts operating as investment funds. She also worked in investment banking as an analyst in debt capital markets transaction management. She was also previously a member of the finance practice at Maples and Calder, the Maples Group's law firm. She received a Bachelor of Laws from Otago University and is admitted as a barrister and solicitor in New Zealand. She is also an Accredited Director Member of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators and a member of the Cayman Islands Directors Association.

The addition of Kim comes on the heels of continued growth of the Maples Group’s fiduciary services business globally which has thrived as a result of the sustained focus on corporate governance by both institutional investors and regulators and demand for greater independent oversight in the investment fund sector. In her role she will serve as an independent director on a wide range of alternative investment funds including hedge funds, fund of funds, segregated portfolio companies, private equity vehicles and related structures.

"As investors continue to become more sophisticated and regulatory scrutiny grows, the need for enhanced oversight and the implementation of governance solutions has become increasingly critical," said Peter Huber, Global Head of Fiduciary. "We are happy to welcome Kim to the team and are confident that her broad experience and unique perspectives will be highly advantageous to our clients in this ever-evolving and often challenging environment."
