“The success of our investment programm will be defined by enhanced risk adjusted performance and liquidity realignment, and it is vital to have a knowledgeable partner with whom the board and the investment team can collaborate to define appropriate metrics and reporting,” said Perry. “We are confident that the independent calculations from Maples Fund Services’ customizable reporting platform will not only provide us with the transparency and insight necessary to execute our new investment strategies but also increase the overall governance of the portfolio.”
