Maples’ Irish funds co-head moves to Ireland

The co-head of Maples and Calder (Ireland) LLP’s Irish funds division is to relocate permanently to Dublin from the firm’s London office.

Adam Donoghue, who has worked with the firm for 13 years, has been developing the international footprint of the Irish Funds and Investment Management Group (FMIG).

He spent a number of years in Maples Group’s Cayman Islands office, before establishing and expanding a full-service FMIG team in London.

The firm says that Donoghue’s relocation will further bolster its senior expertise in Dublin.

Crypto-assets first

Working alongside co-head Eimear O'Dwyer, he will focus on continuing to develop the firm's expertise and strategy in growth areas such as private markets, sustainable finance, digital assets and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

Earlier this year, the firm advised on the first Irish-regulated funds to be granted permission by the Central Bank to take exposure to crypto-assets – a project in which Donoghue was centrally involved.

Peter Stapleton (Ireland managing partner) said that that type of experience and breadth of knowledge, along with his international perspective, would enrich the firm’s Irish practice.
