Sanne names global head of funds

Justin Partington has joined Sanne as its first global head of funds. He is a fund administration veteran having worked across the alternative asset sector in Cayman, London and the Channel Islands.

Sanne Group, a provider of outsourced corporate and fund administration services, has appointed Justin Partington as global head of funds, a newly created role. 

Partington was previously the commercial director of IPE, a European private equity fund administration business where he grew top-line revenue growth and led the launch of new AIFMD regulatory and depositary services. 

Prior to his four-year stint at IPE, he held various positions at Langham Hall, UBS Global Asset Management and Swiss Life Asset Management.

“We are delighted to welcome Justin to the Sanne leadership team,” commented Dean Godwin, chief executive officer of Sanne. “He brings a wealth of experience across the alternative asset space that will enable us to further enhance our offering to clients and strengthen Sanne’s reputation as a leading provider of global administration services.”

In this new role, Partington is responsible for the strategic development of Sanne’s multi- jurisdictional funds capability across the company’s alternative asset classes, comprising private equity, private debt, capital markets and real estate.

Sanne listed on the London Stock Exchange in April 2015. The reporting and fiduciary services provider has a dual organic and acquisition growth strategy.
