Hedge fund governance specialist dms Management has opened an office in the world's hedge fund capital.
The Cayman Islands-based company said that Kathleen Celoria would head the new effort—which is at the forefront of dms' bid to expand into onshore fund governance efforts.
"Our New York office aims to fortify our existing relationships with U.S. stakeholders, many of whom are based in New York, and to facilitate our ongoing face-to-face interactions," Celoria said.

In addition to its Caymans headquarters and new Big Apple digs, dms has offices in Brazil, Hong Kong and Ireland.
