Recognising excellence among US hedge fund service providers for performance in client service, innovation in product development, as well as sustainable business growth over the past 12-months, the HFM annual award ceremony is a highly-anticipated event on the US fund industry circuit.

Awards were presented in a range of categories during the evening, subject to a rigorous judging process, based on the views of a diverse panel of leading hedge fund executives and legal counsel. Calderwood co-founders, Ronan Guilfoyle, and Wade Kenny, accepted the award for the firm, at the event held at Guastavino’s in New York on September 13, recognizing the strength and quality of the firm’s client relationships in the US.

“We greatly appreciate this recognition and would like to thank all of our clients for the opportunity we have to work with them,” commented Mr.Guilfoyle, who is also the current chairman of the Cayman Islands chapter of the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA). “Exceptional client service is paramount to everything we do at Calderwood and it’s extremely satisfying that a number of our clients took the time during this awards process to commend the work we do together.”

Calderwood has significantly expanded in recent years, notably with the 2021 appointments of US investment funds attorney Laura McGrath and expert Cayman Islands regulatory attorney Anna Goubault as independent directors.

As the firm has grown, Calderwood’s fundamental approach to governance of providing highly experienced independent directors with a limit on each director’s number of relatinships, has generated a first-class reputation as the industry’s focus on corporate governance has intensified.

Since launching in 2016 with two co-founders, Calderwood now has eight highly experienced fund directors, with 300+ fund manager relationships. The firm also offers a range of specialist regulatory and compliance services and has an office in the Asia Pacific region to provide time-sensitive services in that time zone.
