Boutique corporate governance firm HighWater now has a presence in New York.

The Cayman Islands-based firm has tapped Matt Auriemma as a principal, providing independent director services to investment funds, mostly hedge funds and other alternative investment vehicles.

Auriemma comes to HighWater from UBP Asset Management, where he served as senior managing director and global head of operational risk management. Before joining UBP in 2009, Matt developed the hedge fund operational risk platforms for Barclays Wealth, Barclays Global Investors and Bank Julius Baer.

“New York continues to be a major hub for Cayman Islands hedge funds, and being close to our markets is a key component of our business model,” said Gary Linford, managing director and founder of HighWater, in a statement. "Matt’s blue chip experience in corporate governance makes him the ideal person to represent HighWater in New York...We are delighted to have him on board.”
