Altair provides access to a highly experienced team of professional directors, each with an average of over 30 years’ experience.

Our directors have chosen directorships as a profession and bring strong proactive commercial awareness to maximise the integrity of your approach to corporate governance. 

In appointing an Altair independent director, you are choosing more than a high calibre individual. You gain access to the collective strength of the only regulated pan-Channel Islands director and consultancy services business.

INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCE

Our directors have chosen directorships as a profession, building on years of relevant experience. An Altair individual gives you the confidence that you have selected the right person for your needs.

Altair directors are professionally qualified and experienced practitioners. Accountants, lawyers, and investments and governance specialists, they bring relevant specialist and technical knowledge to board appointments and our consultancy services.

Our directors average over 30 years’ experience each. They understand the complex regulatory landscape, and promote robust corporate governance and proactive participation.

Altair directors possess a deep understanding of the funds and fiduciary services market. This commercial awareness informs effective decision making to both protect existing business ventures and create new opportunities.

Altair directors operate to the highest standards with strong accountability. Our core values include integrity and good governance.

We build relationships based on trust and transparency. You will reap the benefit of our analytical skills and independence of thinking. We have the capability to challenge constructively, as well as to support.

COLLECTIVE STRENGTH

Altair promotes best practice and has developed a professional infrastructure around its services, incorporating policies, procedures and control systems designed to meet applicable legal and regulatory requirements and the highest standards of corporate governance.

We track and document our directors’ skills, knowledge and experience, ensuring each individual stays up to date with current best practice and standards. Our collective commitment to CPD ensures Altair directors operate efficiently and effectively, and contribute valuable knowledge to our clients.

Our clients include a diverse array of organisations prominent in their fields, including private equity, real estate and hedge funds, public and private companies, investment banks and investment advisers.

Enabling full compliance with changing regulations is a crucial and increasingly complex challenge for funds and fiduciary service organisations. Altair directors have the specialist knowledge, experience and ability to ensure a supportive approach to regulatory consultation and change.

We benefit from specialist skills on call within the team, which adds value to our client relationships.

Altair directors always act with integrity and discretion, ensuring the highest standards of confidentiality. But we are also proud of our culture of collective intelligence, which encourages and enables the exchange of knowledge, insight and experience in order to benefit all of our clients.

Altair’s IT systems are hosted by a specialist provider who manages all aspects of security, including daily backups. Our team receives cyber security training, and all laptops are encrypted. We test our business continuity planning on a regular basis.

Founded in 2012, Altair Partners Limited is regulated by the Jersey Financial Services Commission. Altair Guernsey Limited, formed in 2017, is regulated by the Guernsey Financial Services Commission. We interact with regulators in the same way as many of our clients.

Through our charitable trust, Magpie, the Altair team actively supports local community initiatives with our time and sponsorship. See our Community page for more details.
