Carne Recruits IFS Founder to Join Expanding Team of Independent Fund Directors

Carne Global Financial Services has added a senior figure in the Irish funds industry to its growing list of experienced independent fund directors. Mary Murphy joins Carne as a managing director, Alternatives, and will be based in the firm’s Dublin office.

Murphy is a well-known figure in the Irish funds business, having been a founder and a member of the senior management team at International Fund Services (Ireland) Limited, a State Street company (IFS). From IFS’ launch in 1996, she focused on the growth of its hedge fund administration business and more recently on State Street’s private equity fund services business.

Said John Donohoe, chief executive of Carne Global: “It is vitally important in today’s alternative investments industry that independent fund directors have a lengthy track record and the depth of professional experience that allows them to meet their fiduciary duties. Mary brings both to the market leading team of independent fund directors we have built up in Dublin. She will be working with a number of our clients to help them address their governance needs.”

Carne Global Financial Services already provides independent directors for funds domiciled in Ireland, Luxembourg, and the Cayman Islands. It ensures all the individuals it puts forwards as independent directors for fund boards are appropriately qualified with substantial track records in the investment funds business.
