Hedge fund administration firm Butterfield Fulcrum has expanded its U.S. business development team with the recent addition of Christine Egan.
Egan joins Bill Neville, Jim Gabriele, John Peterson and Bill Henderson, and will report to T. Andrew Smith, global business development head, who joined the firm earlier this year.
Egan is a founding member of The Alliance of Alternative Asset Professionals and joins from Kaufman Rossin Fund Services, where she was director of business development. Egan’s previous experience includes head of regional sales for Bank of Bermuda/HSBC and vice president in client consulting for Morgan Stanley Prime Brokerage.
Since joining in April 2009, Smith has built a global sales team of seasoned professionals to meet the growing demand for transparency, independence and flexibility in the hedge fund sector. Under his leadership, Butterfield Fulcrum has opened a Chicago office, upgraded its U.S. headquarters in New York City to accommodate further growth and attracted significant talent to the firm.
“I am very proud of the team we have assembled to present Butterfield Fulcrum’s innovations to the hedge fund industry,” said Smith. “Investors and asset managers alike are looking for greater insight into their portfolios. We feel our product will benefit hedge fund managers and the tens of millions of individual investors they represent.”
Butterfield Fulcrum is a top five independent alternative fund administration company by assets under administration. Headquartered in Bermuda, the company services more than 700 funds and has 11 offices in nine countries (Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada, Cayman, Guernsey, India, Ireland, UK and the USA).
