How comfortable are you with your independent director?

HighWater has made its mark in the alternative investment funds industry as a boutique provider of corporate governance services, by providing personal, high-quality director services to a select number of premium hedge funds and investment managers.

Meet the Directors

HighWater directors bring the necessary diverse management and advisory experience gained from decades of work in the trenches – including finance, due diligence, investment management, fund administration, audit and fund regulation backgrounds. All of our directors have held senior and high profile roles in the fund industry.


Institutional investors should require independent directors who have relevant industry expertise and who will fulfill their fiduciary duties in the best interests of the fund and its investors. In an industry of growing complexity and increased regulation, investors and managers seek directors who will make a genuine contribution and not shy away from difficult decisions.
Distressed funds can find themselves without the appropriate independent board of directors to guide them through a restructuring process, an orderly realisation of assets, or a voluntary liquidation. This is where HighWater excels.
As a stepping stone to setting up a permanent office, we assist investment fund managers to establish a physical presence in the Cayman Islands, working closely with onshore legal counsel, tax and regulatory advisors.
While focusing on providing independent director services to the alternative investment fund Industry, HighWater also offers a range of ancillary services.
