Appleby expands funds and investment services team in Guernsey

Appleby has announced two senior additions to its funds and investment services team in Guernsey.

The firm’s global head of funds, Ian Gobin, will transfer from the Cayman Islands office to lead the global funds practice for a period of time from Guernsey. He will be joined by Deborah Poole, who will be returning to Appleby in May as a partner in the same team.

Gobin joined Appleby last November, having spent 11 years with another offshore firm. He specialises in funds and finance and has extensive knowledge of both the Guernsey and Cayman Islands markets.

He will relocate to Guernsey for a short period from 1 May and from there will continue to service the group’s Cayman Islands clients, along with his European clients.

Poole will join Appleby as a partner in its funds and investment services team in May, having previously worked at Appleby, originally in Bermuda before relocating to the firm’s London office, for six years until 2002.

She has more than 15 years’ experience in the offshore alternative investments industry and has spent nearly 25 years advising on corporate and mergers and acqusitions (M&A) deals.
