Allfunds Bank has appointed former JP Morgan Luxembourg managing director Chris Edge to head its business in the Grand Duchy to help drive the firm’s international expansion.
Edge has worked for some 20 years at JPMorgan, covering a variety of senior roles for the bank across the UK, South Africa and Luxembourg during two stints, in between which he built a financial service distribution business in the UK and a mobile transactions business in East Africa.
Allfunds Bank’s Chief Executive Juan Alcaraz, said: “I am delighted to welcome Chris to Allfunds at a time when we are extending our European operations.
“We are strongly committed with Luxembourg, as one of the most important financial centre at the heart of Europe, is a natural and logical evolution as Allfunds becomes ever more successful in following and supporting our clients and providers in their international expansion.”
Edge added: “I am really excited to have this opportunity to build upon my long career in European Investment Funds and apply that experience in a major fund distribution business.
“Regulatory change and advisor remuneration rules are creating the catalyst to transform channels and investor access over the next decade and Allfunds is very well positioned to support its clients through this transformation. I look forward to ensuring the investment in the Luxembourg hub will realize the growth potential this offers to Allfunds and its clients and partners.”
