The Directors are selected and engaged for the governance of each fund. Our policy is to engage at least one Director who is an expert in the sector and one Director in the Cayman Islands to ensure the fund operates according to Cayman Islands regulations and documents are filed on time and correctly.
Each Fund Advisor is selected very carefully and engaged to provide expert advice regarding investment opportunities. In many instances we will appoint the same Advisor as a Director to the Fund to ensure consistency in the decision making process.
The Investment Manager, if not convinced with the advice of the fund Advisor, shall look to engage independent experts to authenticate any data, which is not clearly in alignment with the investment strategy.
There are many risk factors that run high in emerging markets, however, it is the Manager’s strategy to engage the government in becoming a strategic partner to ensure that high profile projects do not become bogged down with obstacles that are slow to move beyond creating delays and making projects financially risky.
Virtute Fortuna Aviation Fund SPC is a diverse investment fund focused on two investment strategies. The first strategy is to capitalise on the rapidly developing Corporate Aviation sector.

The secondary focus will be on the Commercial Aviation sector in assisting airlines with their growth and development aspirations, alongside investing in aviation related infrastructure such as airports and associated developments. A particular emphasis within this strategy will be to focus on new and emerging markets and working with local authorities to unlock and harness unrealised potential.

Secondly, the Fund is seeking emerging markets in which to deploy its hospitality technologies strategy and enhance mature markets with new technology efficiencies.
