He continued in that position until 2003, when he was appointed head of fund administration services for the Baring Asset Management group of companies, providing services out of London, Dublin, Guernsey, Isle of Man and Jersey.

Subsequent to the acquisition of the Baring Asset Management Financial Services Group by Northern Trust in 2005, he was appointed country head of Northern Trust’s Irish businesses and, in 2007, he returned to Guernsey to assume the position of jurisdictional head of Northern Trust’s Channel Island businesses.
