The MaplesFS group of companies is wholly owned by the law partnership of Maples and Calder.
Previously referred to as Maples Finance, MaplesFS commenced operations in 1997 in the Cayman Islands with its origins tied to the provision of fiduciary and accounting services to special purpose vehicles used in structured finance transactions.
On the back of significant growth in its structured finance business, in 2003 MaplesFS established its investment funds division. Initially focusing on the provision of fiduciary services to investment funds, in 2005 MaplesFS expanded the investment funds division further to provide a complete range of fund administration services to various forms of investment funds, including hedge funds, private equity funds and fund of hedge funds. As of today, MaplesFS provides all services through its divisions, Maples Fiduciary, Maples Fund Services and Maples Private Client Services.
To date, all growth experienced by MaplesFS has been organic. To expand the jurisdictional footprint and product offering of MaplesFS, from 2003 to date, in addition to the office in the Cayman Islands, strategic offices were established in Bermuda, Boston, Delaware, Dubai, Dublin, Hong Kong, Luxembourg, Montreal, New York, the Netherlands, San Francisco and Singapore. MaplesFS currently also has business development resources working full-time from London.
MaplesFS continues to expand its service capability, leveraging its jurisdictional knowledge and depth of experience of its professional staff.
