David Carrick Group CFO

“I have been in the financial services industry for over 25+ years and the opportunity at Apex is both a unique challenge and fantastic opportunity. The global Group is on a robust upward growth trajectory and while we navigate the related challenges around acquisitions, integrations and organic growth our key focus remains firmly on ensuring none of these impact our clients. There is still amazing potential for expansion as Apex gets ever closer to its goal of becoming the largest independent fund administrator in the world.”

“Operations have never been more imperative than they are today in the asset management world. With regulators around the world increasingly issuing new directives and compliance requirements, as a fund service provider we need to be ahead of the market to stay competitive and deliver value to our clients. Providing outstanding and robust operational services to clients is vital to our success and ability to maintain a competitive advantage, this is why our own in-house infrastructure also needs to rise to that challenge and is something we focus on at all times to evolve, evaluate and expand.”
