Mark Babbe, Associate Director

Corporate Services, Guernsey

Mark leads several client relationship teams focused on the provision of corporate services to both unlisted and listed structures across private equity and the other major asset classes.

With a particular focus on listed administration, Mark manages outsourcing activity for multiple high profile investment managers with listings on the UK and International Stock Exchange. This includes ensuring compliance with relevant stock exchange regulations, managing company secretarial, administration and accounting requirements and investor reporting.

Background and experience

Joining the Group in 2009 as a Financial Reporting Manager, Mark was initially responsible for the accounting requirements of a diverse range of private equity funds. After successfully heading up the onboarding and ongoing management of a number of key client relationships, Mark soon rose through the ranks to Senior Financial Reporting Manager and, subsequently, Associate Director.

Following promotion to his current role, Mark’s focus evolved from overseeing the delivery of a broad range of administration and accounting services across our private equity client base to specialising in more complex corporate structures, including listed vehicles.

Prior to joining us in 2009, Mark spent several years living and working in Australia, where he held various different roles in the finance industry.

Mark qualified as an accountant with BDO – his first role after leaving university. Joining them in 2001, he worked in their audit and assurance department, managing the audits of numerous trading companies as well as a number of financial services entities including private equity funds.

Qualifications

  • Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Sciences and Physical Geography from Oxford Brookes University.

Outside of the office

Mark loves to get involved with sports, formerly having played hockey for Guernsey for over 15 years. He also enjoys participating in other physical endurance challenges. In recent years, Mark has completed various marathons and swim-run events, and has also competed in a white collar boxing show.
