Fiduchi is pleased to announce that Paul Coundley has been promoted to Fiduchi's Board as Director of Operations. Having joined Fiduchi in July 2017 as Head of Operations & Risk, Paul has been responsible for the oversight of Fiduchi's support functions including Compliance, I.T. and Client Accounts teams. Paul is a qualified Chartered Accountant and attained his STEP qualification in 2002. He has built a strong background in operations, finance, risk, compliance and client service delivery within the fiduciary industry, and has also worked for the Jersey Financial Services Commission in the supervision of trust company businesses.
Philip Robinson has been promoted to the position of Associate Director within the Private Wealth team and heads up Fiduchi's family office. Philip joined Fiduchi in 2011 to support the establishment of their family office service. His particular area of focus is on dealing with complex multi-jurisdictional fiduciary structures for HNWIs and UHNWIs. These include arrangements for luxury family assets, as well as more traditional asset classes.
Commenting on the recent promotions, Managing Director David Hopkins said:
As in other businesses, Fiduchi provides clear career progression path for all our employees at all levels within our organisation. Both Paul and Philip have demonstrated their continued commitment and professionalism in their roles, and their promotions are well deserved. Paul's appointment to the Fiduchi Board was also a logical move given Paul's experience and how much he has achieved since joining Fiduchi. Paul has shown himself to be instrumental in delivering a range of transformational change projects and implementing new policies and procedures since he joined Fiduchi. Philip has worked tirelessly to develop a multi-jurisdictional Family Office proposition within the Fiduchi Private Wealth team. His bespoke client service, technical excellence and delivery of the Fiduchi brand values to clients, has earned him respect and admiration from his peers.
