One of Jersey’s leading figures from the asset management industry has joined the JTC. Trevor Falle, who for many years was chief executive of FirstRand’s offshore operations, which incorporates both Ashburton in Jersey and FNB International Trustees in Guernsey, has joined JTC as a Group Director.
He has 35 years’ financial services industry experience in the Channel Islands, London and the United States and spent many years at Ashburton where he was the Managing Director from 2001 to 2007, a period of significant expansion for the Jersey based investment management group. In 2004, while still at the helm at Ashburton, he was also appointed Chief Executive of FirstRand’s offshore operations, a role he remained in until his retirement from the FirstRand Group earlier this year.
Nigel Le Quesne, JTC CEO and Chairman, commented:
“I am delighted that we have managed to secure the services of Trevor for the benefit of the Group. His immense experience in financial services, in banking as well as in the asset management industry, his wide ranging knowledge of international markets especially in Africa and the Middle East and his contacts in those fast developing regions, will help significantly in the formulation of future strategies for the Group and in our growth in these key markets.”
JTC, a multi jurisdictional, independent provider of private client, corporate and fund services, has its headquarters in Jersey and is represented in 15 jurisdictions. The Group has developed its reach and capabilities in 2013 through a series of acquisitions and alliances including the purchase of Guernsey based Ardel Fund Services in April, a strategic alliance with Kensington Trust Group and the acquisition of both Ardel Trust Company (Switzerland) SA based in Geneva and of Anson Fund Managers Limited, which has offices in Guernsey and the UK.
Trevor Falle added:
‘On joining, it was quickly evident that there exists terrific ambition at the Group, a wholehearted desire to meet the needs of its clients and an underlying sense of team spirit amongst everyone. I am looking forward to having the opportunity of representing the Group in a range of strategic initiatives.’
