Carl Peter Meerveld

director of the Exploration and Sierra Multi-Strategy Funds and manager of Global Financial Managers Ltd. He is now residing in Guernsey and became a Deputy in Guernsey. ASIC did not question Mr Meerveld over his role as director of an underlying Trio fund. The Australian Prudential and Regulatory Authority and ASIC have limitations concerning international jurisdictions as pointed out in 2014 during a Parliamentary Joint Committee Statuary Oversight noting, "Fraudulent activity where money is siphoned to other jurisdictions is an international problem. The committee is of the view that Mr Medcraft's new position as head of the international corporate regulator provides an opportunity to negotiate measures that would close the loopholes in international fraud detection and response."

Marc Boudreau

Elusive Canadian friend of Shawn Richard with no financial qualifications, held a pivotal position in the Astarra Strategic international investment process (EMA’s sole director since February 2006). Justice Palmer said in the Supreme Court of New South Wales that Marc Boudreau who, according to his lawyer, knows nothing about the administration of EMA International Limited (“EMA”). Lawyers for EMA informed PPB Advisory that Boudreau “is unlikely to be of much assistance to you as in practice, EMA appointed GCSL of Hong Kong to administer the whole of the operations under the Master Deferred Purchase Agreement and all the investments in the Underlying Funds were implemented by GCSL personnel”.
Richard said it did not matter that Boudreau had no financial background because Boudreau did not have control over the most important part of EMA's function, which was the investments and the monies.
