Jolande brings with her a wealth of experience in the finance and legal sectors, spanning corporate services, AIFMD, bond trusteeship and compliance. Working with financial institutions and corporations, she has held senior positions in both business development and relationship management in some of the world’s leading financial centres.
Brought up in the Netherlands, Jolande began her career following the completion of her Master’s degree in corporate and business law. Recognising that today’s corporations often have offices and operations in multiple-jurisdictions, she has always believed it important to have cross-border legal and commercial knowledge. This mind-set has seen her fulfil roles in the Netherlands, Luxembourg, UK and Sweden over the course of her 25 year career. Commenting on her international experience Jolande said, “My exposure to different jurisdictions is about much more than strengthening my technical expertise, but broadening my knowledge and understanding of different cultures. Before you get down to business, you need to be able to relate to your client. It’s up to the service provider to create that all important trust”.
Based in Sweden for the last seven years, Jolande has been assisting international businesses with the creation and management of operational and holding companies. Her most recent assignment involved the integration of CorpNordic, with operations in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland, with the Netherlands based company, Intertrust. Following the introduction of AIFMD, Jolande used her extensive knowledge of the legal and regulatory landscape in Sweden to play a leading role in the launch of a depositary services division in addition to guiding fund managers on their depositary obligations.
With Sweden having been a key jurisdiction for the Aztec Group for a number of years, the opening of the Stockholm office three years ago was an integral step in supporting our clients’ demands. Jolande’s appointment reaffirms our commitment to strengthening our operations in Sweden and the Nordic region. Jolande comments on what drew her to the Group, “It was a combination of the impressive client and employee retention rate along with a long-term growth strategy which considers both where and when a client might need the Group’s services, all while delivering high quality work”.
Jolande holds a Master of Laws (LLM) degree in corporate and business law from the University of Leiden.
