Meridian Global Fund Services Group has appointed Joyce E. Heinzerling to head a newly formed hedge fund consulting affiliate, Meridian Fund Advisers.
Meridian Fund Advisers will provide hedge fund regulatory and corporate governance best practices advice to hedge funds both within and outside of the Meridian Global client base.
'As president of Meridian Fund Advisers, Ms. Heinzerling will lead the development and delivery of our new hedge fund consulting affiliate, and help bring us to a position of distinction in the hedge fund administration industry in terms of a value add for our clients," says Randy Troy, president of Meridian Fund Services (USA).
"Meridian Fund Advisers essentially has been established to broaden and strengthen our dedication to clients in an effort to provide the highest level of client service in light of the increasingly complex issues that now arise in the hedge fund industry resulting from the heightened regulatory environment and exposure to litigation.'
Heinzerling joins Meridian Fund Advisers after serving nine years as general counsel, CCO and head of operational due diligence at Archery Capital, an investment adviser to emerging manager funds of funds.
Prior to joining Archery Capital, Heinzerling spent 14 years in private practice advising hedge funds, venture capital funds, private equity funds, and mutual funds, as asset management counsel at Shearman & Sterling and, before that, Kramer Levin Naftalis.
