Zedra appoints MD in UK team


ZEDRA, a specialist in trust, corporate and fund services has appointed Stuart McLuckie as its new UK onshore managing director. He will be based at the company’s Cheshire offices.

Having started his career in the UK trust industry and previously running the Group’s key Swiss operations, McLuckie is a specialist in the area of trusts and other wealth and succession planning solutions. His brief in Cheshire will be to lead the expansion of Zedra’s onshore businesses and with just under 20 years of industry experience, he is well placed to deliver this.

McLuckie says: “Zedra is now firmly established as a key player in the domestic and international corporate services, trust and structuring sector. I am looking forward to directing the next phase of growth of the UK business, having successfully led the rapid expansion of our important Swiss offices and having started my career in the UK office.”

Ivo Hemelraad, Group director, says: “Our focus is now on the concept of active wealth. By this, we mean families which have wealth and where the family wishes to employ it in an active way, whether that means investing it in their own businesses or properties or other asset classes. We are confident that with Stuart’s long track record of successfully developing our Swiss business he will be equally successful in the UK market. We feel there is now a huge untapped demand for agile companies such as Zedra to provide more innovative and flexible to solutions to the wealth management challenges faced by a global client base.”

Zedra recently announced that Corsair Capital LLC, one of the longest-standing private equity firms focused on the financial services industry, has made a majority investment in the business.
