The Maples Group, a provider of legal, fiduciary, fund, regulatory and compliance and entity formation and management services, has appointed Kim Bishop as a vice president and independent director within the fiduciary services team in the Cayman Islands.
Bishop has over 15 years of experience in the financial services industry with a focus on legal services, governance and fund administration. Prior to joining the Maples Group, Bishop has worked in investment banking as an analyst in debt capital markets transaction management as well as a member of the finance practice at Maples and Calder, the Maples Group’s law firm.
The Maples Group’s fiduciary services has seen continued global growth 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, Bishop 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.”
