HighWater has also promoted Mark Fagan to director. Fagan was an investment advisor with RBC Dominion Securities; portfolio manager and performance analyst at Butterfield Bank and fund accountant at HSBC Financial Services and Butterfield Fund Services in the Cayman Islands.

Stainrod and Fagan join the other newest arrivals on the Highwater director bench: Matt Auriemma, formerly senior managing director and global head of operational risk management at UBP Asset Management; and Todd Groome, former global chairman of AIMA and advisor to the International Monetary Fund.

Cayman-based HighWater provides independent director services and other corporate governance services to hedge funds and global investment managers.
