Corporate, fund and trust services provider Estera has appointed the Managing Director of its Guernsey branch as Group Head of Funds.
Ethan Levner will have responsibility for funds operations across the 11 jurisdictions the business operates in.
Estera provides a range of administration services to a wide variety of blue-chip companies across asset classes including private equity, debt and funds listed on the LSE and TISE.
Mr Levner joined the company in 2016 and has assumed the role in addition to his responsibilities as Managing Director of Estera Guernsey and Group Head of Corporate Development.
"Ethan has already played a significant role in our group growth strategy and the development of our funds business. His appointment as Group Head of Funds means he will be able to drive further growth and help cement our position as a leading provider of fund administration services across our jurisdictions."
Mr Levner brings nearly 20 years of experience in corporate strategy, private equity and investment banking to the role. Before joining Estera, he was Director at AnaCap Financial Partners and also spent time as a Managing Director at JRJ Ventures LLP. Prior to that, Mr Levner worked as Director of UBS Investment Bank where he advised financial institutions on M&A, capital raising and other restructuring activities.
He added: "Our funds business plays a central role in the success of the group as a whole and I'm delighted to assume responsibility for further development of Estera's offering in the funds space. It's an exciting time for our funds business, not least because of our investment in the market-leading PE fund administration platform eFront, and the acquisition of Luxembourg funds business Allegro, subject to regulatory approval, as well as the launch of our new office in Guernsey.
"Our teams consist of private equity and listed funds experts, supported by deep operations scale group leadership commitment and ongoing infrastructure investment. Alongside our funds team, I am excited to continue building our business whilst ensuring we never compromise our core values of commitment to our staff and excellence in client service."
