Former chairman of the Alternative Investment Management Association Todd Groome has joined corporate governance firm the Highwater Group.

Groome has 28 years of experience in international financial markets, working in both public and private sectors and across geographies. Prior to his four years as AIMA Chairman, where he represented the hedge fund industry globally, Groome was an advisor on financial markets to the International Monetary Fund for over five years, was an investment banker for more than 13 years, and practiced law in Washington DC for five years. Most recently, he has been a Senior Advisor to Albourne Partners, and advised a start-up hedge fund during its successful launch in 2011.

Highwater founding partner Gary Linford said, “I am thrilled that Todd has elected to join us and reinforce the confidence many have in the Highwater approach to corporate governance. We continue to add selectively to our small group of highly experienced individuals, and we are delighted that Highwater continues to attract such high caliber professionals as Todd.”

Highwater provides independent director services and other corporate governance services to hedge funds and global investment managers through the appointment of experienced, professional and truly independent directors.
