Jersey based fund administrator Saltgate has announced Nadja Borges as its first-ever Chief Innovation Officer.
In the newly formed role, Nadja will develop the company’s skills, products and services to drive Saltgate’s client service across jurisdictions. She reports to the group CEO, Simon Riley.
Before joining Saltgate, Nadja worked for more than 10 years as a client to Saltgate, first at the private equity firms Akina and Unigestion, and then at the private infrastructure investor Reichmuth & Co.
Nadja Borges, Saltgate Chief Innovation Officer, says: “I’ve worked with Saltgate for a long time, and I know how much value they give to the funds world and investors. As a client, we had a close partnership, and saw them as part of our team. So it’s fantastic to join them in this new position.
“For me, the aim is to partner our teams with the right technology so we can give our clients even more value through the work we do every day.”
Simon Riley, Saltgate Chief Executive Officer, says: “It’s great to have Nadja on-board as a full-time member of the team. In this new role, she’ll use her knowledge of alterative assets, finance and technology to help us grow our business, and give our clients the best service across jurisdictions.”
The hire is the latest in a series of senior female appointments at Saltgate. Four of the company’s five C-suite positions are now occupied by women – including Chief Corporate Officer, Hannah Culshaw; Chief People Officer, Ali French; and Chief Commercial Officer, Alex Anthony. In 2020 the firm promoted Lizette Morales to Head of Jersey. It also hired Michala Wright as Saltgate’s Head of People.
