Authorised Corporate Director (ACD)

Independent ACD Outsourcing Solutions - Vantage Ventures 

Authorised Corporate Director (ACD) is particularly useful for investment managers who are quite simply seeking to outsource the governing and oversight of the fund to an external authorised firm.   

This not only adds a layer of scrutiny, but also allows the external firm to recommend risk management, thus preventing any conflict of interest.  This allowing the investment managers to focus on value creation and deal origination.  

Authorised Corporate Director services can often be seen as a Non-Executive Director type role, where the governance standards would be reviewed and improved where required; thus reducing the administrative burden on the fund managers.
