With 13 years’ experience in financial services, Aleksander has multi-jurisdictional experience in the structuring and oversight of funds having worked in Ireland and Luxembourg for major banks and fund administration companies. He joins Crestbridge from fund administration firm Circle Partners where he held a senior role in Luxembourg with a broad range of regulatory, compliance, operational and management responsibilities.

Aleksander has an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of funds and significant corporate governance, risk and compliance experience working across the hedge fund, private equity and UCITS space.

Sue Saddul has become the Conducting Officer of the Crestbridge management company, in charge of portfolio management for real assets and a board member.

Sue has over 30 years’ experience working with multi-national institutions in Luxembourg as well as institutional, private businesses and start-ups in the UK and Mauritius, and across several industries – including manufacturing, construction, media and communications and financial services.  She has previously held positions on Boards and Investment Committees of Luxembourg regulated and unregulated Real Estate Fund structures, Management Companies and AIFMs.

Daniela Klasén-Martin, Group Head of Management Company Services and Head of Luxembourg, said: “We continued to see growth across the Crestbridge Group last year, including in Luxembourg where we are witnessing rising demand for high quality solutions in support of cross-border investment fund, M&A, structured financing and other corporate activity.

“We fully expect that trend to persist through 2019 and with that in mind, I am delighted to welcome Aleksander, and Sue to the senior team. Their knowledge and expertise will undoubtedly prove hugely valuable in their new leadership roles, as we look to ensure the ongoing success of our clients.”
