Atlantic Fund Services, a leading independent provider of fund servicing, opens an office in London. AFS now operates in 8 markets.
The UK office will focus on business development. “London is a city of decision makers and a true centre for asset managers. We just have to be present here”, says Roman Lewszyk, CEO of Atlantic’s European business.
The new office is headed by Julian Naylor, a seasoned financial services IT executive. For the past 25 years Julian has specialised in information technology and asset servicing. Prior to joining Atlantic, Naylor was Managing Director of Confluence, and also held senior roles at BNY Mellon and DST. “I am truly delighted to be joining such a dynamic and exciting organisation. Following the successes of Atlantic in continental Europe, it is now time to replicate this in the UK”, comments Julian Naylor.
By entering the UK, Atlantic now operates in eight markets: Poland, Luxembourg, U.S., Czech Republic, Slovakia, Liechtenstein, and, since last month, Austria. The London office will play a strategic role of a bridge between America and Europe.
