Crestbridge has appointed Raul Ramos as Associate Director and Head of Private Equity Fund Accounting Jersey, as it continues to strengthen its multi-jurisdictional funds team and grow its global private equity proposition.
Based in Jersey, Raul will oversee the accounting function for Crestbridge’s expanding, and increasingly broad, private equity client base. He brings with him significant cross-border private equity experience in fund accounting, fund operations, and investor and regulatory reporting.
With more than 16 years’ experience as a Certified Public Accountant, 12 of which have been in the financial services space, Raul has specialist expertise in mezzanine funds, venture capital and fund-of-funds as well as private equity.
He joins Crestbridge from a global administrator where he led the accounting service team and various large scale projects in the Jersey office, as well as acting as director to Jersey companies and unregulated funds. Prior to this Raul worked for one of the ‘big 4’ accounting firms providing assurance and financial accounting advisory services. Raul has previously been a regular speaker for Invest Europe’s Finance and Administration course.
Michael Johnson, Head of Institutional Services at Crestbridge, said: “We’re continuing to see growing demand from GPs for agile, high quality support services as they look to navigate the increasingly complex international regulatory and reporting environment. With this in mind, and in line with our strategic growth ambitions in the private equity space, Crestbridge are focused on bolstering our teams. I’m delighted to welcome Raul, his significant fund accounting and reporting expertise will add significant value and further improve efficiencies for both our business and our clients alike”.
