Thursday, October 11, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update: Maples Fund Services, a division of MaplesFS, has expanded its U.S. operations with the hire of Megan Corcoran, Director of Business Development, Americas. Based in New York, Megan will focus on expanding opportunities for continued growth of the fund services business in North America and South America.

Megan will work closely with Scott Somerville, CEO of MaplesFS, and Toni Pinkerton, Global Head of Fund Services, to sell fund administration, middle-office and risk services to the alternative investment market. With an increase in assets under administration of more than 30 percent over the past year, the addition to the business development team is primarily in response to expanding market share in North America.
