Mainspring’s Stephen Geddes to lead Apex UK

by Silvia Saccardi 21 September 2023

Apex Group has appointed Stephen Geddes as regional head for the UK.

Founder of Mainspring Fund Services, Geddes was CEO there for 13 years and joined Apex when the firm was acquired in September 2022.

Mainspring was founded in 2010 to provide fund management services to the PE and VC industry. Geddes established the firm after eight years at London-based events business and former investment firm Pi Capital. In that role, he gained experience in finance, HR and IT, in addition to helping form funds and manage LP relationships. Prior to that, he spent three years at Eden Capital as investment manager.

Geddes commented on his appointment: “It is an exciting time to take on a new role as we see significant growth opportunities for Apex Group in the UK financial services industry. Along with the experienced regional management team, I will be focused on ensuring that we leverage Apex Group’s global technology-enabled solutions, while also recognising the unique needs of the UK market and our growing local client base across all asset classes both covering listed and private assets.”
