ZEDRA Appoints Geneva Head

Amisha Mehta, Deputy Editor, 7 September 2016


The trust, fiduciary, corporate and fund services firm has hired a well-known figure in the Swiss trust industry.

ZEDRA Group has hired Stuart McLuckie as managing director in Geneva, a newly-created role.

McLuckie joins after five years as a director at Rhone Trust and Fiduciary Services, previously Banque Pictet’s trust company in Geneva. Before that, he spent over 10 years at Barclays’ trust operations, seven of which he spent in Geneva, where he was the deputy head of the office.

He brings experience in the management of private client structures in multiple jurisdictions as well as in a business development and management function.

Since its acquisition from Barclays by an independent investor group in January 2016, ZEDRA has been busy making hires. Last month, it appointed Greg Murray as head of compliance in Jersey and Andrew Wilson as associate director of marine and aviation. In July, John Hunter joined as director for business development and in April, the firm bought Jersey-based Azure Trust.

ZEDRA has offices in 10 jurisdictions and employs more than 300 people. Its client base includes high net worth individuals and their families, international corporations, institutional investors and entrepreneurs. Click here for a recent interview by this news service about its ambitions.
