HFA Names New Co-Chairs In Caymans

Dec 19 2013 | 2:33am ET

A major hedge-fund industry group has picked a pair of new leaders in the Cayman Islands.

The Hedge Fund Association said Christina Bodden and Colin Nicholson would serve as co-directors of its chapter in the offshore haven. Bodden is a partner at law firm Maples and Calder, while Nicholson works at KPMG.

“Due to investor demand and increased government oversight, improving transparency and educating managers about the evolving regulatory environment are key themes for the HFA, as well as our local alternative investments industry,” Nicholson said. "I am honored to be involved in a leadership capacity for the HFA, one of the most prominent non-profit hedge fund associations, and a group whose mission is to speak up for and unite all industry participants."
