Genesis Trust & Corporate Services Ltd. (“Genesis”) announces that Dawn Howe will be joining Genesis, from 2 January 2018.

J. Paul Drake, Managing Director of Genesis, said:

“We are delighted that Dawn has agreed to join the team at Genesis. In the New Year she will be providing fiduciary services to clients and additional in-house legal support.”

“Having been advised by Dawn for several years, as outside legal counsel, we appreciate why she is so highly regarded both locally and internationally. She has an in depth knowledge of Cayman structures, with a particular focus on investment funds, which, together with her regulatory expertise, will make her a valuable addition to our team.”

Ingrid Pierce, Global Managing Partner of Walkers, said:

“Dawn has been a great contributor to the business and has represented Walkers on various industry bodies such as AIMA Cayman and the Investment Funds Sector sub-committee of Cayman Finance. However, we are very pleased for and supportive of her as she takes this next step in her career and are delighted that we will be able to continue to work with her in her new role.

Genesis Trust & Corporate Services Ltd. (“Genesis Trust”) was established in 1992 by the partners of KPMG in the Cayman Islands. In 1998 it became a fully licenced trust company regulated by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority, which allowed Genesis Trust to offer a comprehensive range of trust and corporate services to its clients. Genesis now provides services to several hundred entities and has become one of the leading firms in the Cayman Islands for yacht and ship registration.

Due to the regulations introduced in 2004 regarding auditor independence, namely the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the SEC regulations in the US, Genesis Trust was forced to break its ties with KPMG. This separation has enabled Genesis Trust to extend the scope of services it offers to include independent directorship services as well as administration of funds.
