Prior to joining the Group in 2016, Grant spent eight years working for Link Asset Services (previously Capita) in Jersey as Head of Shareholder Solutions. During his time there, Grant was responsible for corporate, trust and incentive structures administered for a variety of clients, including listed institutions, private companies and investment funds.

Outside of the office

Grant enjoys all forms of motorsport. While he has a particular penchant for rallying, he also likes participating in sand racing, hill climbs and motorcycle sprints, and has consecutively won best overall driver for Jersey numerous times. Outside of that, he loves nothing more than spending summer on the boat with his family, fishing for lobsters and bass.
