2020 will always be remembered as the start of the global COVID-19 pandemic that changed the way we work forever.
Despite a difficult economic environment, we grew our headcount over 35% across our offices and strengthened our Executive Team with a new Chief Commercial Officer, Chief Information Officer and Group Director of Compliance.
We further strengthened our alternatives offering, welcoming a new Head of Debt and launching our Debt and Loan Agency services.
To ensure the new way of working didn’t impact our service levels, we moved all employees to a remote working environment, seamlessly engaging our multi-jurisdictional staff through MS Teams and SharePoint to increase collaboration and reinforce our existing culture of people first.
In order to allow for continued growth in our fast changing world, we also migrated our IT infrastructure to a hybrid cloud environment to give us further agility to stay ahead of the unexpected.
In line with our long term plans to expand our geographic scope and grow the business globally, we have also doubled our office space in Jersey to allow for additional growth in 2021 and beyond.
Although the pandemic is still present with some uncertain times ahead, we are excited to continue our evolution in 2021.
