Bowen has worked in the banking and fiduciary industry for over 30 years. He joins Minerva from Standard Bank, where he worked for six years in a number of executive roles, most recently as global head of the private clients trust & fiduciary business. Prior to joining Standard Bank, Bowen was employed by JP Morgan Chase for over 20 years where he held a number of senior roles.
Vipin Shah, chairman of Minerva, says: “We are delighted to announce the appointment of Steven as Minerva’s group managing director. His extensive knowledge and wealth of experience will assist Minerva in working more effectively as a group with a common purpose and focus, so that we can make the most out of the opportunities open to us within the unique markets in which we operate.”
Bowen says: “I am delighted to join Minerva. Minerva has been in existence for over 35 years and has grown considerably during that time, but it has remained independent and family owned, factors which are very important to clients today and which I believe will become increasingly so in the future. As a result Minerva is uniquely placed in the market and I look forward to leading the group in what is a very important and exciting time.”
