The combination of State Street and TMF funds platforms will create a tremendous offering to take to funds around the world, whether for the funds themselves, their SPVs or the operating entities they have invested in.”
Bob Keogh, Head of Alternative Investment Solutions for EMEA at State Street, says: “We are pleased to have agreed this transaction with TMF Group, and believe they are very well placed to take this business forward in the Channel Islands, while allowing State Street to realign our focus to other growth opportunities.  We will work closely with TMF Group over the coming months to ensure a seamless transition for our clients and employees in Jersey and Guernsey.”
Paul Mundy, Head of Alternative Investment Solutions for the Channel Islands at State Street, says: “I’m excited to be working with TMF Group, and look forward to helping grow its fund administration business in the Channel Islands.”
