Rob Childs, Head of International at Prescient Fund Services added, “We are pleased to welcome Finian to Prescient at a time where having depth and experience in the senior team has never been more important. The Irish business is set to continue its growth in 2021, with our traditional and alternative UCITS and AIFMD platform businesses crossing the US$4 billion mark earlier this month, as well as a new UCITS Common Contractual Fund coming on stream. We are also seeing increased demand for our cost-effective and operationally efficient support for real asset strategies across private equity and real estate.”
