International professional services provider, Equiom, has appointed Gavin Devitt as Head of Client Solutions, Fund Governance. 

Based in London, Devitt has overall responsibility for promoting Equiom’s fund services globally, drawing on its capabilities and expertise across key funds markets such as the Cayman Islands, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and the Crown Dependencies. His appointment comes hot on the heels of Equiom’s recent acquisition of an Irish Fund Management Company.

Devitt says: "I am excited to join a business with a truly global reach and at such an interesting time in the industry right now - Brexit, Ireland's new Investment Limited Partnership (ILP), the Central Bank's publication of the thematic review of fund management companies and the continued growth of the funds industry in Europe. Now, more than ever, investors and investment managers are looking to partner with organisations which offer flexible solutions combined with the expertise and best in class service levels and Equiom is ideally placed to be the partner of choice.

"I am hugely impressed by the depth of knowledge of the teams at Equiom, and its commitment to building on its position in the funds market. I very much look forward to being part of this journey."

Prior to joining Equiom, Devitt served as Director at a leading fund governance company where he specialised in private investment funds, hedge funds and SPVs for a European client base. His strong background in alternatives, asset management and global fund administration, give him a broad based of knowledge to develop tailored client solutions. 

Jeremy Fearnley, Global Head of Strategy, says: "Gavin’s appointment will complement our existing activities and accelerate our growth ambitions in the fund space. Over his career to date, Gavin has gained significant experience across multiple jurisdictions working with globally recognised brands and we’re delighted to welcome such an energetic and driven professional to the team."
