JTC, a provider of fund, corporate and private client services, has completed the purchase of GAM’s fund administration business in the Cayman Islands.
The acquisition, which was initially announced in October 2015, will expand the capabilities of JTC’s Cayman Islands office to offer a broad range of fund administration services.
JTC has received all regulatory approvals from the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority and will now be able to provide a full spectrum of fund administration services, adding to the private client services it already offers from the jurisdiction.
As part of the deal, 14 GAM staff in Cayman will move to JTC’s Institutional Client Services division, which caters for a full range of fund vehicles and offers services for asset managers in the US looking to establish offshore fund vehicles.
The new business will be headed by managing director Christine Godfray, who was formerly CEO of GAM’s fund services business known as Swiss & Global Fund Administration (Cayman)
Godfray will be responsible for working with colleagues in JTC’s offices across the world to attract fund administration and corporate services business to the Group and the Cayman Islands.
