Senior industry professionals, James Bryant and Ken Ritchie, have joined Highvern Fund Administrators Limited, the independent boutique fund services business from former Coutts trust arm - Highvern - as head of operations and head of accounting respectively.
Mr Ritchie previously worked at Link Asset Services as a senior manager and prior to that spent five years at PwC in both Jersey and the Cayman Islands. Mr Bryant also joins Highvern Fund Administrators from Link Asset Services where he worked for over nine years in funds and corporate solutions.
“This is going be to a very distinct business, given Highvern’s philosophy” Mr Ritchie commented. “We are committed to building a truly boutique funds business that focuses on adding quality through new technology and specific processes backed by highly trained staff, whilst creating long term client relationships benefiting from real continuity and independence.”
“We can provide high quality service created exclusively for our clients because we are bespoke, committed, private and precise,” added Mr Bryant. “Highvern’s heritage and proven track record of delivering quality service to its clients, speaks for itself.”
“Our goal is to disrupt the traditional model of fund administration to give clients a level of service they have never seen before. To achieve this we will be investing in new IT, security, processes and, most importantly, staff who truly share our vision” further commented Aidan O'Flanagan, head of funds at Highvern. “Ken’s and James’ appointment clearly demonstrate Highvern’s commitment to achieving these results.”
