He has a wealth of knowledge in a variety of asset classes including digital, real assets, private equity, debt, hedge, and the more specialised niche esoteric assets.

Paul has also held senior Risk and Compliance roles at several well-respected banks including Royal Bank of Scotland International, Citibank and JP Morgan.
Commenting on his appointment, Paul added “I am excited to have joined the team at VG and working alongside the existing highly experienced team to grow the funds business. Being one of Jersey’s largest independent providers means VG is able to be nimble and responsive to client needs. This is a key requirement in a developing market and one of the many things that has attracted me to VG."
Paul’s appointment will lean on his extensive fund administration and custody experience, with a focus on staff development, client relations and risk management as he works alongside Ashley Le Feuvre to strengthen and build the existing book of regulated funds business.
