Todd Groome, former chairman of the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA), has joined the Highwater Group.
Groome (pictured) has 28 years of experience in international financial markets, working in both public and private sectors and across geographies.
Prior to his four years (2009 – 2012) as AIMA chairman, where he represented the hedge fund industry globally, Groome was an adviser on financial markets to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for over five years, was an investment banker for more than 13 years, and practiced law in Washington DC for five years.
Most recently, he has been a senior adviser to Albourne Partners, and advised a start-up hedge fund during its successful launch in 2011.
While at the IMF, he worked with G7 and G20 financial regulators and policy officials on hedge funds, private equity and related financial market issues.
“I am thrilled that Todd has elected to join us and reinforce the confidence many have in the Highwater approach to corporate governance,” says Gary Linford, founder of Highwater. “We continue to add selectively to our small group of highly experienced individuals, and we are delighted that Highwater continues to attract such high calibre professionals as Todd.”
