Crestbridge appoints new Group Head of Private Equity

Crestbridge has announced the appointment of Alex Di Santo as Group Head of Private Equity as it continues to target further growth.

In his new role, Alex is responsible for the development and implementation of Crestbridge’s private equity fund services strategy including maintaining the highest levels of client care. He will have additional responsibilities in raising the business’ profile in the private equity fund services space, as well as identifying and targeting new and strategically important revenue opportunities.

Based in Jersey, Alex brings with him over 17 years’ experience in the financial services industry, of which, 14 years were focussed on private capital fund administration. He has significant specialist expertise in private capital covering private debt and private equity (spanning venture, growth and buyout).

Prior to joining Crestbridge, Alex was a Director and Jersey Head of Private Equity for a global institutional fund administration business where he was responsible for driving the development, implementation and evaluation of the funds service line strategy in Jersey. He oversaw the management of a large fund administration team servicing in excess of USD 30 billion of AUM and was instrumental in supporting key clients through diversification of both strategy and domicile in an increasingly complex funds market.

Alex was admitted to the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators in 2011.

Michael Johnson, Group Head of Institutional Services at Crestbridge, said:

“It’s a pleasure to welcome Alex to the Crestbridge team. In an industry with increasingly complex requirements around regulation, transparency and technology, his extensive knowledge and experience in private capital fund administration will make him an asset to the business. His appointment represents a positive step in Crestbridge’s ongoing strategy to continue to identify and hire world-class expertise.”
