Carne Group, a Dublin-based provider of governance solutions to the global fund management industry, has appointed Vanessa Barrett to its team of independent fund directors in Cayman Islands.
The move brings the total number of independent fund directors in Carne’s Cayman office to five and the group said it would be moving to larger offices as part of its ongoing expansion.
Barrett was previously principal at VBM Management, a Cayman-based governance provider. She has also been a director at DMS Management. Prior to this, she worked at Ernst & Young and in UBS in several jurisdictions, including Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, the UK and the US.
Barrett has served as a director on Cayman Islands funds since 2010 and has extensive experience at senior management level with the alternative fund services division at UBS.
Peter Heaps, managing director of Carne in Cayman Islands, said: "Vanessa’s experience of the hedge funds industry, of corporate governance and the local requirements of fund boards will be of great value to our clients."
