OUR APPROACH

BEST PRACTICE GOVERNANCE

Bell Rock is at the forefront of promoting the highest standards of offshore fund governance from initial consultation with managers on industry best practice to working with service providers to develop a corporate governance framework.

INDUSTRY INSIGHT

Our experience as professional independent directors provides us with a unique insight on industry developments across a range of hedge funds in different global regions, fund strategies, investor demands and regional regulatory matters. We are a key partner to industry and frequently meet with industry partners in the major financial cities, at our offices in Cayman and elsewhere.

INDEPENDENT OVERSIGHT

Independence is fundamental to demonstrating best practice governance and ensuring investors are treated fairly. In our view, an independent director should be just that: independent. We do not provide services that may present a conflict of interest and therefore have no affiliation with investment managers or advisers, law firms, fund administrators, prime brokers or auditors. We do not hold investments in any of the hedge funds that we act for.

SENIOR INDUSTRY EXPERTISE

Investors demand that fund directors have adequate expertise that enable them to fully understand risk management, legal and regulatory developments, portfolio management, compliance, operations and tax. Bell Rock professionals have over 15 years expertise at leading global firms in key areas of international finance.

OUR TEAM

David Lloyd, Managing Director

At Bell Rock, we pride ourselves on being a relationship firm, with an emphasis on accessibility, trust and integrity. With close ties to the industry our mission is to be at the forefront of best practice corporate governance initiatives and a leader in offshore financial services.
