TMF Group Launches Ambitious Capital Markets Growth Plan With Two High-Level Appointments
TMF Group, a leading global provider of high-value business services, has announced its intent to transform its Capital Markets and SPV business with two high-profile additions to its senior management team.
Jeroen van Zanten, recruited from fund and trust services rival Citco, becomes Global Head of Capital Markets & SPV.
Jeroen, who will spearhead the transformation of TMF Group's Capital Markets offering, has over 20 years’ experience working with Private Equity and Real Estate (PERE) Funds, High Net Worth Individuals and Corporate and Multinational clients from across the world.
Commenting on his appointment, Jeroen welcomed the challenge and the opportunities that his new role at TMF Group will bring:
"TMF Group holds a unique and exciting position in this sector. Its executive team has demonstrated a compelling vision and appetite for change which, coupled with the range and depth of its regulatory knowledge, puts TMF Group at the forefront of this market."
He continued: "The potential, for both us and our clients, is huge and I'm extremely excited about helping TMF Group cement its leadership position."
Jeroen’s management team will be strengthened further by the arrival at TMF Group of Bruno Bagnouls, who leaves PERE fund and corporate services provider, Alter Domus, after 15 years. He takes up the role of Global Head of PERE, reporting to van Zanten.
“It is always difficult to leave a company after a long period of time,” explained Bagnouls. “However, the roadmap presented to me by TMF Group and their vision for growth within the PERE sector was too compelling an opportunity to miss.”
The appointments are part of a wider TMF Group strategy to transform its offering as Chief Executive, Frederik van Tuyll, explained:
“To maintain a leading market position, we need to attract the very best talent to serve our clients. We are already reaping the rewards of a significant transformation in our Global Business Services division and now it is the turn of our Capital Markets & SPV business.”
He added: “The arrival of Jeroen and Bruno to the TMF Group team, can be considered as a statement of intent. To continue to be the most innovative provider in the sector we need the best people, and we expect to make many more expert appointments in the coming months. This is just the start of our transformation as we leverage our unique global platform of 115 offices and our breadth of services to create a unique service offering for the market.”
