Kinetic Partners, a division of Duff & Phelps, has appointed Adrian Johnson as a Managing Director in the firm’s London office. 

Integrating closely with Kinetic Partners’ award-winning regulatory compliance and tax advisory practice, Adrian will lead a new service to deliver outsourced business services to the investment management industry, including regulatory and financial reporting, management accounts, VAT returns, payroll and company secretarial services. This latest development at Kinetic Partners marks another exciting chapter of planned expansion and growth since it was founded in 2005 and acquired by Duff & Phelps in January 2015.
Adrian has over 20 years’ accounting and finance experience. Most recently he led the accounting practice at a global regulatory advisory firm delivering outsourced business services to investment management clients. Previously Adrian spent two years as head of finance at BlueGold Capital, a USD2 billion commodities hedge fund, and 10 years as director of finance at Thames River Capital, an USD11 billion diversified investment management business.
Julian Korek, Head of Compliance and Regulatory Consulting at Kinetic Partners, says: “The regulatory and fiscal requirements on financial services firms have increased significantly in recent years, with the areas of compliance, regulatory financial reporting and tax increasingly overlapping. With Adrian’s extensive accounting and finance experience, combined with Kinetic Partners’ leading expertise in regulatory compliance and tax, Adrian’s appointment represents real progress in the development of our service offering.  Clients will benefit from a holistic service of integrated expertise from one trusted global provider, giving them confidence that their regulatory obligations are met and thereby allowing more time to focus on raising and investing capital”.
