How would describe your approach to fund governance?
AURUM is a fund governance firm focused on building long term rela-tionships with our clients.  We believe a strong governance culture helps contribute to a manager’s long term success.  We limit the number of engagements to ensure we are accessible to our cli-ents.  We believe investing time with our managers pre-launch and in between board meetings is where we add the most value.  We want our clients to draw on our experience and benefit from AURUM’s ex-pertise.
AURUM provides world class directors.  Our directors have over a cen-tury of experience, and work with some of the largest fund managers in the world.  Our directors have held C-suite positions at large insti-tutional fund managers and have hands on experience setting up hedge and private equity structures, overseeing day to day operations of the manager, and navigating complex compliance environ-ments.  Other AURUM directors have spent many years at leading fund administration and fund governance firms in the Cayman Islands.  Re-gardless of your needs, the AURUM team will be able to provide a qualified director and is well positioned to offer guidance.
