Duff & Phelps has announced the promotion of Malin Nilsson to Managing Director within its Compliance and Regulatory Consulting practice in the Channel Islands.
Based in Jersey, Malin has been pivotal since 2012 in establishing Duff & Phelps’ Jersey office, which has grown to service some of the island’s most highly respected firms locally, as well as globally.
In her new leadership position, Malin will oversee the future direction of Duff & Phelps in the Channel Islands and ensure that it remains a leading authority on regulation and compliance.
Joining Duff & Phelps in 2007 from a ‘Big Four’ firm, Malin has focused on advising clients on regulatory matters, including leading regulatory enforcement and supervisory reviews focusing on governance and compliance arrangements, AML controls and risk management.
Also within the Jersey office, Sarah Bentley has been promoted to Vice President after a successful three years with the firm, and Ed Shorrock celebrates over a year as Director.
The promotions coincide with the international news that Duff & Phelps has signed an agreement to acquire Kroll, the global leader in complex investigations, security and cyber solutions.
Commenting on the promotions, Malin said:
“I am delighted to have achieved this milestone, which comes off the back of exceptional growth locally and is evidence of our commitment to the Channel Islands’ regulatory and compliance landscape. I am certain that the future for the firm here in Jersey will be positive and that our expertise will continue to assist clients with all of their needs to comply with the high standards of regulation that exist in the Channel Islands.”
Monique Melis, Global Head of Regulatory Consulting at Duff & Phelps, added:
“Duff & Phelps’ dedication to growth is underpinned by investment in people and development, and Malin leading our efforts locally as a managing director emphasises our focus on being the leading compliance and regulatory advisor to our clients in the Channel Islands.”
