HFL offers independent Directorship and Governance consultancy services. As long-term residents of Hong Kong, we are motivated contributors to the growth of Asia's financial industry; and throughout our careers, have been committed to the learning, developing, and implementing of sound practices globally. We passionately believe in the importance of Governance as a cornerstone of the ongoing growth of the fund management industry.
For the Manager:
A strong governance framework will help protect against the vast array of downside risks that can impact the success of even the best performing funds. As the world evolves, so do the risks; and managers must evolve with them. A good independent director will stay across current industry trends, as well as provide fresh perspectives on emerging risks and their mitigation. In this respect, HFL not only offers independent governance, but proactively works to understand your business and act as a key resource.
For the Investor:
Expectations for levels of governance and protection of investment have continued to grow since the financial crisis in 2008. Correspondingly, the importance of Directors who provide meaningful input and oversight to the Fund’s governance framework has also rightfully risen. In particular, independence from the Fund Manager and management of conflicts of interest are key. Our mandate is to protect the rights and interests of all investors.
We believe in maintaining a strong dialogue with service providers as key agents in the Fund’s governance framework.
We aim to add value throughout the Fund's lifecycle; and across the Fund’s ecosystem of stakeholders and providers.
