Our directors leverage industry-leading proprietary technology to ensure all your needs are met.

      The roles performed include the following:

      • Independent Professional Directors
      • Managing Members and Board of Managers
      • General Partners
      • Advisory Committee Members
      • Independent Fund and Investor Representatives.

      The Waystone approach to fund governance goes beyond simply providing a single director to a fund and is built on the belief that fund governance is a continuum – a system of checks and balances. Waystone’s independent professional directors are assisted by a specialist team of fund governance professionals who review each governance transaction, applying practical considerations based on their extensive experience.
