Industry Professionals serving as non-executive directors to Alternative Funds

News from IPAF (UK) Ltd

Caroline Hoare and Stella Murrell, the executive directors of IPAF (UK) Ltd, are delighted to announce the addition of three new panel directors. 

Two of them are in Dublin:  Barbara Healy and Victoria Parry.   Nicola Meaden Grenham, also an Irish resident, is one of IPAF’s original panel members. This means that IPAF now has an extremely strong Irish team.

Barbara, former Global Head of Operations at JP Morgan HFS, is a chartered accountant with expertise in hedge fund administration and has significant experience of serving on fund boards.  Victoria, former Senior Legal Counsel at GLG and Global Head of Product Legal at Man Group, is a lawyer and non-executive director of considerable standing.  Nicola is a hedge fund legend and her vast experience ranges from investment expertise, marketing and asset raising to detailed knowledge of regulation.

The third very pleasing addition is former fund manager CEO and COO Brian O’Callaghan.  Brian is resident in Malta and brings many years of both hedge fund and private equity skills to the panel.

IPAF stands for Industry Professionals serving as NEDs to Alternative Funds.  It was set up in response to the need for independent, knowledgeable and committed directors who have hands-on experience of working in the alternative funds industry and add real value to the boards on which they serve.

These recent additions bring the total number of people who are on IPAF’s panel and available to serve as non-executive directors to 15.  Between them, these panel directors cover all disciplines in the alternative funds space and come from a variety of jurisdictions (Cayman, Bermuda, Barbados, Channel Islands, Ireland, Switzerland, Malta and UK), but are interchangeable in their high calibre and genuine experience.
