Jersey Finance has appointed Philip Pirecki to head up its business development in the US, ahead of plans to open a New York Office.
In his new role, Pirecki will aim to boost Jersey’s visibility in the US as an international finance centre. He will emphasise Jersey’s capabilities as a gateway to Europe for US fund managers.
Prior to joining, Pirecki was an independent director for hedge, private equity and investment companies. Previously he was partner and director of Silver Sail Advisors LLP, a London-based investment advisory business. Prior to that he was partner and COO at Silverstone Capital LLP, a London-based hedge fund group.
He is a member of The Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA).
Jersey Finance’s New York office, which will be situated on Avenue of America’s, is set to be formally opened at a launch event later this year.
Commenting on his appointment, Pirecki said: “Jersey is perfectly positioned to capture a burgeoning US institutional investor market that is looking acutely at European opportunities but that is cautious because of the complex European regulatory landscape.”
