U.K.'s Throgmorton Taps Selvarajah To Beef Up Tax Team

Feb 9 2011 | 7:31am ET

U.K. hedge fund accountancy firm Throgmorton has hired Sara Selvarajah to bolster its tax team.
 
Selvarajah, formerly a senior member of the tax team at Salomon Brothers and a tax consultant for Citigroup, brings 20 years’ experience to her new role. She will assist and service Throgmorton’s increasing client base with her knowledge across all aspects of tax.

Throgmorton is counting on Selvarajah’s experience and contacts to help it capitalize on the shrinking banking sector and the growing number of proprietary trading desks spinning out to set up fund management companies.
 
Selvarajah is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants and member of the Chartered Institute of Tax.
 
Trevor Brown, director and Throgmorton’s head of tax, said:
 
“Sara has been working with us as a consultant and we are delighted to welcome her formally to our team.

“Market forces continue to encourage investment banking spin outs and these new ventures see that outsourcing improves their processes, helps to manage costs and allows them to concentrate on what they do best—manage funds.”
