Edward James joins Cofunds’ institutional service


Cofunds announces the appointment Edward James as Head of New Business Development for its institutional service, which provides specialist fund dealing, settlement and sub-custodian services to a range of clients from private wealth managers, through financial institutions to web based share dealing providers and life companies.

James will head up the institutional sales team, bringing with him a wealth of experience and skills from previous roles having worked in the industry for 16 years. 
Commenting on the new appointment, Christopher James, Director, Institutional Services, says: “This senior appointment demonstrates our commitment to servicing our expanding institutional client base. Edward’s experience and ability to build strong, productive relationships will be of great importance as we continue to develop our services and take on more clients."
Edward James says: “The team at Cofunds has worked hard over the last few years to build a very strong service that provides operational efficiency and risk benefits. They are well placed to take advantage of the changing financial landscape. 
“It already has some of the largest financial institutions as clients, and there are many opportunities out there as acquisition vehicles increase and we see a proliferation in smaller boutique wealth managers. In addition, growth in investor self-service will almost certainly lead to growth in the direct to consumer execution-only space, and Cofunds can help power these solutions.
“I’m looking forward to being a part of the dynamic institutional team at Cofunds as they grow their client base in the lead up to the RDR and beyond.”
