Fund administrator Saltgate SA has appointed Jean-François Flamant to its board in Luxembourg.
Jean-François – known throughout the funds industry as Jeff (pictured) – joined Saltgate as its Head of Depositary last year.
He has over two decades’ experience in financial services. He oversees Saltgate’s depositary servicing for fund managers to help drive Saltgate’s client service.
Jeff joined Saltgate from TMF Group, where he was Head of Depositary Services. He also spent 20 years as an alternative funds specialist at ABN Amro and BGL BNP Paribas.
Luxembourg’s financial regulator, the CSSF, has authorised Jeff’s appointment to Saltgate SA’s board. He also acts as an authorised manager of Saltgate SA.
Jeff says: “It’s great to be joining Saltgate SA’s board. In my time in the financial world, I’ve been aware of Saltgate’s reputation for offering a personalised, flexible client experience – something that my time here has confirmed.
“It’s an attitude that fits in with my approach of focusing on the long-term, and adapting your approach to make sure your clients’ assets are always in safe hands. I am happy to see that Saltgate SA is increasing its market share and commitment in Luxembourg.”
Saltgate’s Chief Corporate Officer, Hannah Culshaw, says: “This is a great appointment. Jeff is recognised as a force in the funds industry. As well as his financial experience, he’s known for exceptional quality and for making sure clients get a great service, with a personal touch.
“In the time that Jeff’s been at Saltgate, he’s shown an active commitment to driving our culture and practices forward so that we’re best placed to support our clients through best-practice service delivery.
“At Saltgate, we’ve always focused on two things to help us stand apart: building long-term relationships with our clients, and developing our talent so our teams can achieve their best. Jeff exemplifies that. His knowledge and personality are a great fit for our team, and I’m happy to welcome him to the board.”
