The Maples group, highlighting its continued platinum approach to servicing the hedge fund market, was honoured with three industry awards at The HFM European Hedge Fund Services Awards 2015. Maples and Calder once again affirmed its position as the leading offshore law firm for investment funds, being named as 'Best Offshore Law Firm'. Maples Fund Services also triumphed, winning 'Best administrator – under $30bn single manager' as well as 'Best administrator – small and start-up firms.'

The group's integrated and synergistic service offering has resulted in many successes over the year.

Clients and competitors alike acknowledge the firm as the market leader in each of their principal practice areas, particularly funds, finance and corporate.
Maples Fund Services' strong performance acknowledges its ability to remain a stable option for existing and new clients during uncertain market conditions. The firm has continued to provide a high standard of client service through bespoke technology solutions including MaplesFS Connect, which enables investment teams to understand and attribute sources of portfolio risk, and to drill-down into underlying data investigating causal factors via an online portal.
