Fiduchi's presence in the Middle East region continues to grow since it opened its dedicated Dubai office at the start of 2019, headed up by Regional Director Christopher Dungan.
Providing a range of bespoke financial services including Private Client, Corporate, Funds and Yachts Services. It has seen an increased demand from individuals and corporates in the region who require a trusted independent partner to provide tailored solutions.
As a result, Executive Director Darren Hocquard has joined the Dubai team to further enhance Fiduchi's presence in the region, whilst providing greater "on-the-ground" client support.
Darren, (a Director at Fiduchi for over twenty years) has a strong background in Yacht Management, Family Office, Corporate and Employee Benefits services. Darren prides himself in the strong relationships he builds with his clients and their advisors, some of which have been with him for over 15 years.
Alongside the more traditional trust company offerings, Darren has experience with setting up Private Trust Companies (PTCs), Managed Trust Companies (MTCs), Foundations and structures for Superyacht ownership and management. He works closely with professional client advisors to tailor the most appropriate structure for each client's circumstances.
Commenting on his relocation to the Dubai office, Darren said:
"Fiduchi's strategic plan has always been to increase our presence in the Middle East. Christopher and the team have done tremendously well in growing the Fiduchi's brand and supporting our existing client base in what we consider to be an essential market for us.
Individuals and corporates in the Middle East require assistance in wealth planning, preservation and structuring. That is something an independent financial service company like Fiduchi has a long history and expertise in providing.
Being a fully mobile business in terms of telephony and IT infrastructure means that virtually anyone from our team can work from anywhere. So whilst I'm relocating to the Middle East, it doesn't change how I work or the contact and support I provide my existing clients."
