Based in Jersey, Aaron brings with him 19 years’ experience working with alternative and institutional fund managers across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. As well as extensive knowledge of front and back office services, he previously worked in the Fintech space in London and Jersey as a member of the board of one of the world’s largest privately owned foreign exchange businesses, where he was instrumental in developing their funds business. Before this Aaron was based in London working as a consultant for a large financial services company specialising in risk management and strategic hedging solutions to a wide range of corporate and institutional clients.

Crestbridge’s global funds business has grown by a third in the last year despite the global pandemic. This growth was driven in large part by private equity and venture capital fund managers, who seek the high levels of service, communication and tech-powered processes that Crestbridge is known for in this space.

Michael Johnson, Head of Institutional Services, at Crestbridge, said:

“I’m delighted to welcome Aaron, with his wealth of multijurisdictional experience in both front and back office funds services. His multi-faceted set of skills makes him a perfect match for his team and will be fundamental as we look to capitalise on our growth trajectory and strengthen ties with managers and intermediaries in the private equity and venture capital industry.”

Crestbridge was recently shortlisted as a finalist in a fund administration category at the private equity industry’s The Drawdown Service Provider Awards.

Ends.

Solvay Again Wins Patent Case in Germany23.9.2020 09:00:00 CESTPress release

Solvay has won another patent infringement case in Germany against Neo Chemicals & Oxides Ltd.. In a judgment released on September 3, 2020, the Düsseldorf Regional Court concluded that Neo’s commercialization of certain Cerium/Zirconium based mixed oxides had infringed Solvay’s patent EP 1527018. The infringement judgment is still subject to Neo’s right to appeal, but enforceable immediately under the condition of the provision of a security while the European Patent Office has confirmed the validity of the patent in two instances. The Court ordered Neo to stop the infringement, meaning that Neo must not commercialize its products covered by the Solvay patent in Germany any longer. Neo has also been ordered to recall the infringing products which are still kept by its customers. Solvay has taken steps to enforce the judgment. Neo was previously held liable for numerous violations of Solvay’s patents in the rare earth field, including unappealable judgments handed down by superior cour

The Kahala Hotel & Resort Yokohama to Open23.9.2020 07:20:00 CESTPress release

Resorttrust, Inc. (TOKYO:4681) has announced that The Kahala Hotel & Resort Yokohama will open for business on September 23. One of the most famous hotels in Honolulu, The Kahala Hotel & Resort, has continued to be a favorite destination of guests from around the world for more than half a century. The Kahala Hotel & Resort Yokohama represents a first step toward growing the Kahala brand worldwide. Yokohama, at just 30 minutes by car from Haneda Airport, is very conveniently located, and is a community rich in history and with a unique culture. It is also considered to be an up and coming global city. But there are also perfectly appropriate reasons for Yokohama to be the first place in Japan to open a Hawaiian hotel brand. In 1868, Japan’s first emigrants set off from the Osanbashi area in Yokohama to what was then the new paradise known as Hawaii. Some decades later, it was also Yokohama where the Meiji government in Japan welcomed its first state guest, King David Kalakaua from the
