WHY MERIDIAN FUND SERVICES?
Meridian Fund Services is an owner-managed group independent of any other service provider to the hedge fund industry.
Our goal is efficiency and courtesy in our delivery of high-quality service. In order to deliver such service, we believe we need to have a high-quality team of employees. For this reason, our emphasis lies with our people. Through careful recruiting and the provision of exceptional compensation and working conditions, we have an enviable staff retention record. We strive to ensure our level of service is of a consistently high standard in all of our offices.
We also strive to ensure that our services are delivered in an accurate and timely manner. We are constantly reviewing and updating our technology to help us meet this goal.
We provide service to funds that are established in many jurisdictions: Bermuda, Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Curacao, the Channel Islands and the United States. We have the expertise to service every type of fund structure and investment approach, from the straight forward to the very complex. The investors in the funds we administer are from every part of the world. The investment expertise provided to the funds we administer comes from investment managers located in various parts of the world, with the predominant number being located in the United States.
We fully appreciate our role and responsibilities in the worldwide fight against the efforts to legitimize the proceeds of crime and terrorism. All staff members are trained so that they fully understand and can discharge their responsibilities under all relevant legislation, regulations and customs. To further assist in this effort, we have a very experienced compliance officer and in-house legal counsel.
We also appreciate that we have a role to play in the good corporate governance of the funds we administer. In this regard, we provide senior officers to serve on the boards of funds so that we have a high level of understanding of fund activities and are in a position to help implement preventative measures, if required. To ensure that we are maintaining high standards, we have an annual audit of our records and maintain appropriate insurance cover. We have successfully completed a SAS 70 Type II audit of our operating procedures.
