Our directors are experienced and knowledgeable individuals, who understand the needs of private equity and fund structures.
This service is often combined with our other holding company and SPV management services and/or our domiciliation services, for the full corporate services support and to aid with the domiciliation of the UK company.
The appointment process requires considerable diligence from both parties and we strongly recommend you get in touch with us to discuss your needs at the earliest opportunity.
Before any of our directors can be appointed, we need to have a thorough and comprehensive understanding of the company and its business, as well as the reason that our services are required, whether this is confidentiality, tax or business operations.
We would also expect that you would want to carry out reasonable diligence on the individual(s) who will be appointed as a director, to ensure they have the requisite skills and background to carry out the role.
Directors’ Duties and Nominees
As with all UK directors, our directors are required to meet their directors’ duties, which require them to exercise independent judgment. It is a condition of any appointment that the director(s) are able to exercise their independent judgement and are fully involved in any decision.
Although our directors are often representing the interests of a shareholder, they are not a nominee director in the purest sense. To understand more about the UK laws relating to nominee directors and how this impacts our service, please get in touch or please see our guide to nominee directors.
The term Nominee Director is commonly used, but without understanding the legal structure behind it. Please see our guide for further information about how this applies in the UK.
