Ben Sansoucy CA joins Castle Hall Alternatives from CPPIB


Castle Hall Alternatives, a provider of operational due diligence to hedge fund investors, has recruited Ben Sansoucy, CA (pictured) as a senior manager.

Sansoucy was previously Senior Manager of Operational Due Diligence at the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB), where he led the operational due diligence process overseeing external portfolio fund investments. CPPIB, based in Toronto, had assets of USD148.2 billion as at March 31, 2011.

Before joining CPPIB in 2007, Sansoucy held the position of Senior Manager with Fortis Prime Fund Solutions (Cayman), a fund administrator, where he was responsible for risk based inspections of key operating functions and was closely involved in the process by which Fortis Cayman obtained its first SAS 70 certification. He also served as an account manager responsible for accounting, administration and NAV calculation across a portfolio of hedge fund clients.

Sansoucy is a member of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants, receiving his qualification while working with Deloitte and then PricewaterhouseCoopers in Toronto.

“From inception, Castle Hall has adopted a wholly unconflicted approach to operational due diligence, and I greatly admire the firm’s commitment to independence and close client relationships," says Sansourcy. "Castle Hall has exceptional experience conducting due diligence across different strategies and types of manager organisations worldwide, and I very much look forward to helping the firm continue its growth.”

Castle Hall’s President and CEO, Christopher Addy, says: “We are delighted to welcome Ben to Castle Hall’s team. Ben’s experience leading the operational due diligence program for one of the world’s largest institutional investors, combined with his prior experience in fund administration, enhances both our knowledge base and our client service capability.”
