Ogier Global, Ogier's corporate administration business, has welcomed experienced director Jason Fitzgerald to its growing team in the Cayman Islands.
Jason will lead the Director Services service line, providing services to Cayman investment funds alongside former financial services investigator Mark Drummond and experienced Cayman Attorney Ben Gillooly.
The Ogier Global team in the Cayman Islands continues to grow, with a five-strong team of directors which includes Sabina Jerrybandan and Fiona Barrie and a team of corporate administrators headed by Brad Conolly as manager and Richard Christian as senior administrator, complementing the specialist investment funds legal team led by partners James Bergstrom, Jo Huckle, Nick Rogers, Justin Savage and Giorgio Subiotto.
Jason has extensive experience in fund administration oversight and governance, having worked for the past 15 years in the hedge funds industry in Bermuda, Ireland and the Cayman Islands, and having begun his career as an auditor.
Jamie Bore, Chief Operating Officer at Ogier, said: "We are very pleased to welcome Jason to the growing Ogier Global team. Ogier Global continues to go from strength to strength providing integrated corporate and legal services to our international clients to incorporate and administer a wide variety of vehicles.
"Jason has an excellent reputation in the market for his experience and commercialism, and his fund administration and accountancy background is a strong complement to our existing Director Services team of Ben Gillooly, who has 13 years' experience as a Cayman Attorney in senior in-house and private practice roles, Mark Drummond, formerly of Cayman's Financial Crime Unit and Financial Reporting Authority. The team also includes Fiona Barrie and Sabina Jerrybandan who have extensive experience in the trustee role for Cayman unit trusts, working with investment managers in Asia and North America.
