We are pleased to announce the appointment of Geraldine O’Rourke as a Director, to lead and drive our Corporate Services offering from the Jersey office.
Renowned in the industry for her impact at Abacus Financial Services Group, Geraldine’s career highlight to date was the setup of Abacus’ Corporate Service Division, growing it from inception to over 100 employees in under 10 years, along with a strong financial performance.
With over 30 years in the finance industry, prior to joining the Group Geraldine gained substantial experience as a trustee and director, leading teams administrating offshore structures for corporate clients including employee benefit plans, funds and special purpose vehicles as well as ultra-high net worth individuals.
Commenting on her recent appointment, Geraldine reflects, “I’m delighted to be joining the Aztec Group to lead their growing Corporate Services team in Jersey. It’s exciting to be part of a truly independent, dynamic and owner managed business. Aztec has a fantastic reputation, some of the most pre-eminent European fund managers as its clients, great people and quality processes.”
Edward Moore, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at the Aztec Group, commented “I am thrilled to announce Geraldine’s appointment at the Group, following a strategic decision to grow our Corporate Services offering in line with existing client demand and to seek out new opportunities across our jurisdictional footprint. Geraldine has a proven and distinguished track record at Abacus in establishing, leading and growing a high quality diversified Corporate Service provider, supporting many global leading institutional brands.”
Consistent with the our people-centric approach, a testament to Geraldine’s philanthropic efforts is her work outside of the finance sector. Geraldine is a foster carer in Jersey and is also currently studying for a degree in psychology to support her efforts. Edward comments “In addition to experience, Geraldine brings with her an incredibly strong focus on people and building relationships, which is one of the core values we strive to achieve with our own clients.”
