Why does a Fund need independent directors?
- Preferred by investors and regulators.
- Provides a greater level of transparency.
- Independent oversight.
- Protects the investors and the fund.
- Provides guidance to the manager
- Reduces liability for the manager.
- The recent Weavering case made clear that Cayman Islands courts do not look kindly on non-professional directors.
Our Victor Murray recently (January 2013) participated as a panelist on the Regulatory Compliance Association telecast discussing the role of independent directors in the valuation process of hard to value assets. In particular the recent Morgan Keegan case brought by the SEC against the independent directors was discussed where the SEC found the directors liable for failing to give meaningful insightful guidance to the manager. In addition, although the board had regular board meetings the value of the information considered at those meetings was questioned by the SEC as the directors did not ask appropriate questions and they were not able to decipher from the information provided whether the valuations had changed since the last valuation.
MG Management’s directors have worked with hundreds of investment funds, private equity partnerships and other investment companies and have considerable experience in fund directorship and corporate governance.
