Maples Fund Services has hired Jason Brandt, regional head of fund services for the Americas, to lead the firm’s growing presence in the region.
Brandt has more than 18 years of experience in the financial services sector, focused primarily in hedge funds and private equity.
Brandt’s efforts will focus on servicing the growing North American business through expansion of administration, middle-office and risk services to investment managers, institutional investors and family offices. He will have responsibility over mandates serviced from North America, overseeing client relationship and operations teams. He will be based in the firm’s Montreal office and will play a key leadership role in the management and development of the business across the Americas.
“Jason brings a solid combination of fund operations, management and business development experience,” says Toni Pinkerton, global head of fund services. “I am confident that our clients and their investors will benefit from his leadership, particularly as the industry continues to adapt to ongoing regulatory change.”
Brandt previously worked for Deutsche Bank Alternative Fund Services in London, where he was responsible for client relationships globally, as well as growing the EMEA and Asia business. Prior to Deutsche Bank, he served as managing director and chief operating officer of Hedgeworks, which was acquired by Deutsche Bank in 2008. His early career included positions with Capital Guardian Trust Company, Ernst & Young and Coopers & Lybrand.
