Mirabaud hosts the Hedge Fund Standards Board (HFSB) in Geneva

On November 11th, the Hedge Fund Standards Board (HFSB) held its annual Swiss Institutional Investor Roundtable in Geneva. The event was hosted by Mirabaud Asset Management and brought leading international hedge fund investors and managers around the table to discuss issues in relation to Standards, governance, risk management and transparency. Mirabaud Asset Management is a member of the HFSB Investor Chapter, and supports the adoption of the Hedge Fund Standards by single managers.

Lionel Aeschlimann, Partner and CEO of Mirabaud Asset Management, highlighted that “sophisticated institutional investors play an important role in driving better standards in the market place, and the HFSB provides a very useful platform to manage this process. We are delighted to be part of this effort.”
 
Dénes Galyó, Chief Risk Officer at Mirabaud Asset Management, participated in a panel discussing the evolving requirements in the area of investor due diligence of hedge fund managers: “Despite increased regulation, a thorough due diligence of managers is indispensable. In particular, the due diligence needs to take account of new operating models in the industry, which requires expanding the due diligence to the outsourcing and service providers of the managers and the funds.”
