A new appointment at LouvreFund sees Marco Ferreira join as a Manager. Marco will spend approximately six months working in the Guernsey office before heading out to Asia to lead LouvreFund’s expansion plans in the area.
Marco brings in-depth fund experience to the role, with over 16 years in the finance industry both here in Guernsey and in South Africa. He has previously played a key role in establishing an overseas fund administration office and has worked extensively with UCITS funds.
Marco qualified as a Certified Accounting Technician in 2006 and was awarded a distinction for his Diploma in Fund Administration in 2010. He also holds an Advanced Certificate in Fund Administration and is certified in Offshore Finance and Administration.
‘We have seen an increasing demand for fund services alongside our fiduciary-led offering in our Singapore and Hong Kong offices and this has led to the creation of this new role,’ explains Kevin Gilligan, Managing Director of LouvreFund.
Martin De La Mare, ACCA, BSc (Hons), has also been promoted to the role of Associate Director. Martin has been with LouvreFund since 2011 and he heads up the valuations and financial reporting teams, as well as assisting the executive team on new business and client on-boarding. With a client base encompassing a wide range of alternative asset classes including private equity, venture capital, structured products, forestry and hedge funds, he also sits on the boards of a number of investment management companies.
Martin has 16 years of experience within the financial services industry. He joined LouvreFund in June 2011 as a Financial Reporting Manager. Martin is a member of the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants, having qualified in 2010. In 2011 he achieved first-class honours in Applied Accounting with the Oxford Brookes University.
‘The second quarter of 2014 has seen a number of significant client wins and as we recruit to meet those new business needs it has also given us an opportunity to develop staff members who, like Martin, deserve promotion,’ comments Kevin.
Louvre recently moved offices to help accommodate the company’s expansion and the new premises on The Bordage will help to ensure the organisation is ready for continued future growth.
