Intertrust reshuffles fund services

Intertrust has reshuffled its fund services team across Jersey and Guernsey in a bid to ensure "future growth and development."

It has repositioned its two specialist fund service offering in the Channel Islands with a new unified team now servicing both private equity and real estate.

Michael Johnson, head of funds in the Channel Islands, now oversees both Intertrust's private equity and real estate businesses. He will lead a team of more than 150 fund service specialists across Jersey and Guernsey, making Intertrust one of the largest fund administration businesses in the islands.

We recognise that fund services are a hugely competitive market in the Channel Islands and these changes will enable us to build on our position at the forefront of the industry. Greater alignment between our Jersey and Guernsey teams harnesses our collective strength and Michael's experience in heading up this team will be vital"

Alex Di Santo, as head of private equity, will continue to lead a team of 65 industry specialists and grow Intertrust's private equity business in Jersey. Di Santo has more than 15 years' experience in the sector and a comprehensive knowledge of offshore and onshore fund structuring.
 
Kees Jager, as head of funds Guernsey, will focus on growing the business in the island and strengthening the links between the Guernsey and Jersey teams. Jager has over 19 years' experience working in fund administration.

Simon Mackenzie, managing director at Intertrust in Jersey, said: "We recognise that fund services are a hugely competitive market in the Channel Islands and these changes will enable us to build on our position at the forefront of the industry. Greater alignment between our Jersey and Guernsey teams harnesses our collective strength and Michael's experience in heading up this team will be vital.

"Michael, Jane, Alex and Kees have all played an integral part in the growth of our fund services team in Channel Islands and we look forward to their leadership continuing the team's success in 2019 and beyond."
