Carne has appointed Laren Gillespie to its team of Cayman Islands independent fund directors. He joins the firm as the firm continues to see increasing demand for its brand of independent fund governance and oversight from fund managers and their legal advisers around the world.

Gillespie previously worked at Intertrust Fund Services (Cayman) in the Cayman Islands, where he provided independent fund directorship services to hedge funds, private equity funds and investment management structures.

Prior to joining Walkers Fund Services in the Cayman Islands (which was acquired by the Intertrust Group in July 2012) he worked with a private family office and an international financial services firm based in the Cayman Islands where he implemented risk monitoring programmes and was also a member of the investment committee.

Prior to moving to the Cayman Islands in 1998, he worked in the UK for Ernst & Young in Edinburgh and for Arthur Andersen, specializing in international taxation.

Gillespie is a qualified chartered accountant and a chartered financial analyst (CFA) charterholder and is a current director and past president of the CFA Society Cayman Islands.

His appointment follows those of Scott Craven Jones to Carne’s US team earlier this month, and the addition of Vanessa Barrett to the Cayman Islands office in August. Carne now has six independent fund directors in the Cayman Islands and 25 globally.
