Director and Substance Solutions

Find both Executive and Non-Executive Directors (NEDs), in multiple jurisdictions.

Within fund and company structures, there is often a need for both onshore and offshore General Partner entities and SPVs. To satisfy the requirements of regulators, investors, and other stakeholders, these entities require independent management, rigorous corporate governance and a robust infrastructure. The Brexit vote, and the consequently uncertain regulatory environment, means that establishing substance in a transparent manner is vital for managers hoping to distribute their products in the EU.

When taking a role on a fund board we work closely with our legal colleagues and the fund’s promoter from the outset. Acting independently from the fund’s administrator, we are able to provide comfort to investors on the proper oversight of the fund.

In addition to our own team, which is very experienced in these functions, we are able to provide access to a trusted network of specialist fund and corporate directors, developed over time through our own personal networks and through NED events that MJ Hudson has been holding for a number of years.

Any other company secretarial or related requirements (such as an outsourced General Counsel) can likewise be met by our teams in the Channel Islands or onshore.

Engaging the MJ Hudson team in this area will help to ensure that your entities are well-managed and that the operational risk to you and your investors is minimised. The nature of the experienced professionals in our team and in our network means that our directors are often able to add additional value by providing introductions to influential individuals and institutions.
