Matt Horton, Director

Leading our private equity teams in Guernsey, Matt oversees the provision of administration, financial reporting and other support services to a broad portfolio of clients, ranging from start-up and mid-market managers to some of the largest fund promoters in Europe.

In addition to having responsibility for all operational, client service and business development matters related to our Guernsey private equity offering, Matt is a key member of the senior leadership team, and plays a vital role in the ongoing strategic development of our multi-jurisdictional private equity platform.

Background and experience

Matt joined the Group in 2010, accepting the role of Associate Director within our Guernsey office. After playing an instrumental role in overseeing our continued growth in Guernsey and leading several complex migrations, Matt was promoted to Director and Jurisdictional Head of Private Equity in 2016. Since 2018, he has served as Deputy Group Head of Private Equity.

Matt boasts a broad range of experience across finance, strategy and property management, and has held positions in these sectors working from London, New Zealand and, most recently, Guernsey. Prior to joining our private equity department, Matt spent one year as a Director at Anson Group, where he specialised in listed funds.

Before that, he held a number of senior positions, including Business Advisor at New Zealand Funds, Strategy Manager for Norwich Union Healthcare (now Aviva), and CFO/Vice President at JP Morgan. Matt’s first professional role after completing his degree was on the finance graduate scheme at BMW, where he worked on various Land Rover and Mini projects as an intern.


  • Chartered Management Accountant.
  • Associate of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Economics from Southampton University.

Outside of the office

As a father to three young children, Matt has a busy family life. However, he can still occasionally be found on the water in some capacity, whether that means relaxing on his boat or out windsurfing in the sea off the coast of Guernsey.
