The Hedge Fund Association announced Tuesday that it has selected two industry leaders to head its Cayman Islands chapter.
The organization said through a statement that as co-directors of the Cayman Islands chapter, Christina Bodden and Colin Nicholson are responsible for directing HFA;s local member events and educational program, while contributing to its "global mission of increasing transparency, accelerating business and professional development, and fostering greater trust in alternative investments."
Bodden is a partner at law firm Maples and Calder, where she leads its investment funds group. She is also a co-founder of the Cayman Islands location of 100 Women in Hedge Funds and serves both on their local main committee and their philanthropic sub-committee.
With 15 years of investment management experience under his belt, Nicholson is currently a partner in the alternative investments group at KPMG in the Cayman Islands, where he is also the head of learning and development.
HFA is an international not-for-profit organization that represents the hedge fund industry including more than 10,000 hedge funds in the U.S. and abroad.
