Calderwood appoints Anna Goubault as independent director

Tuesday, June 01, 2021
Opalesque Industry Update - Calderwood, a Cayman Islands boutique fund governance firm, has expanded its senior team with the appointment of legal and regulatory compliance expert Anna Goubault as an Independent Director.

Ms. Goubault brings to the firm significant experience in the field of investment funds, both from a governance perspective and in relation to regulatory compliance and legal issues. In a consultancy capacity, Ms. Goubault advised the Cayman Islands Government Ministry of Financial Services on the development and implementation of several pieces of financial services legislation, including those related to compliance with the global standards on economic substance and enhancements to the Cayman Islands' domestic regulatory framework for investment funds.

As an investment funds attorney, Ms. Goubault has developed considerable expertise in the establishment and structuring of funds in addition to fund governance and regulatory compliance matters. Previously, Ms. Goubault worked at a leading international law firm in the Cayman Islands, where she represented some of that firm's most prominent clients, in relation to both open- and closed- ended funds, providing advice on their establishment, legal and regulatory obligations, as well as liquidity, restructuring and termination.

As an independent director with Calderwood, Ms. Goubault will undertake board appointments on Cayman Islands funds and related structures, providing guidance and counsel on corporate governance and regulatory compliance.

Her appointment comes at an exciting time for Calderwood, which this year celebrates its fifth anniversary. The firm has significantly expanded its team of independent directors over this period, in addition to broadening its range of services to include full turnkey solutions for tax information exchange and anti money laundering/know your client compliance. The firm's roster of highly experienced independent directors now stands at seven, with additional hires to be announced soon.

"We are delighted to welcome Anna to our growing team in the Cayman Islands," said Calderwood co- founder Ronan Guilfoyle. "She is highly regarded within the Cayman Islands investment funds sector and with her strong regulatory expertise and legal background, she will be a great asset to the firm as we continue along this growth path."

"I am very pleased to be joining such a dynamic team and look forward to contributing to Calderwood's continued success, as investment funds and managers continue to adapt to the strengthening and implementation of evolving regulatory frameworks," Ms. Goubault said.

Since launching in 2016, Calderwood has developed over 300 investment manager relationships and the firm also operates an office in Asia, to provide time sensitive directorship and compliance services in that region.
