Maples Fund Services is celebrating a decade of ‘excellence and innovation’ as the firm marks the tenth anniversary of its formation in the Cayman Islands in 2005.
Maples Fund Services – a division of MaplesFS – now provides fund administration and accounting services to an international client base comprised of top tier financial institutions, fund managers, institutional investors and high net worth individuals, and operates in key onshore and offshore financial centres including Boston, the Cayman Islands, Dubai, Dublin, Hong Kong, Luxembourg, Montreal, New York and Singapore.
"This is a proud moment for our firm. I would like to thank all of our clients for their continued commitment and support," says Toni Pinkerton, Global Head of Fund Services at Maples Fund Services. "Of course, our success has very much been a team effort and every member of staff has played a part in our achievements. Our teams in Asia, Cayman, Europe, the Middle East and North America have all contributed to our success across their respective jurisdictions, navigating tough economic climates, increasing regulation, new office openings, expansions and acquisitions."
Now in her fifth year as Global Head of Fund Services, Pinkerton has been with the firm since its inception and has been integral to its growth and success. In April 2015, Pinkerton was joined at the helm by Tyler Kim, Maples Fund Services’ Chief Information Officer, who took on the additional role of co-Global Head of Fund Services in recognition of the accelerating importance of technology to fund services globally. "Over the past decade, Maples Fund Services has grown from strength to strength, establishing a presence across all major financial jurisdictions and gaining the respect and trust of our clients and peers," said Kim. "I am excited to join Toni as a Global Head as Maples Fund Services continues to excel, particularly in the areas of technology and regulatory reporting. Our value-added services are becoming evermore important to our clients and only further differentiate Maples Fund Services among its competitors."
As part of the Maples group, the combination of fund and fiduciary services offered by MaplesFS, by way of Maples Fund Services and Maples Fiduciary, alongside the legal expertise offered by leading international law firm Maples and Calder, is being recognised by the industry as a formidable combination and a welcome alternative to the bank custodian or private equity backed administration model.
"Our reputation for excellence and innovation continues to grow and we look forward to building on this in the future," says Scott Somerville, Chief Executive Officer of MaplesFS. “We are not only proud of what we have achieved over the past decade but also excited about what the next 10 years hold for us, as we continue to build out our world-class service offering and provide solutions to help our clients succeed."
