Maples Group Appoints Edwin Parker as Director of Business Development in Europe
16 May 2019
Mr. Parker brings over two decades of experience working with alternative and institutional asset managers and asset owners across Europe, as well as extensive knowledge of front and back office services and systems. He was most recently a Managing Director for a global investment management and investment services provider, responsible for all business and relationship development in EMEA. Prior to that, he held various senior positions with other large global fund administrators with a focus on sales and marketing management and strategic and operational planning in the EMEA region. He received a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Business Information Management and French.
The addition of Mr. Parker comes on the heels of continued growth of the Maples Group’s fund services business. Leveraging the group’s collective expertise, global footprint and award-winning technology, the Maples Group provides clients with high-quality service that can be customised to address their specific needs. As a result of this approach, the Maples Group’s fund services business now counts more than US$98 billion in assets under administration and continues to build its portfolio of hedge fund, private equity and institutional investor clients. Mr. Parker will be based in London and will work closely with Christina McCarthy, Regional Head of Fund Services - Europe, to drive the growth of the fund services business across greater Europe, as well as working closely with colleagues across the Maples Group globally.
"An ever evolving regulatory and investor landscape is putting more pressure than ever before on fund managers to optimise their operational processes and we remain committed to evolving our service offering to address their needs," said McCarthy. "We continue to see significant demand for our fund services offering in Europe and are confident that our broad capabilities which include the design and delivery of innovative solutions, coupled with Edwin’s experience and expertise will be highly advantageous to our ongoing efforts."
