Calastone snaps up ex-SWIFT employee


Edward Glyn has left SWIFT after nearly a decade to join Calastone as managing director and head of global client relationship management.

Glyn spent nine years at SWIFT in a variety of roles, most recently heading up its funds business across EMEA, and the regional team managing SWIFT’s investment management, custody and asset servicing offerings.

Glyn has over 15 years’ experience in fund distribution, securities servicing and wealth management with particular expertise in distribution dynamics, market infrastructure and fund platform sectors and their associated technologies.

Reporting to Calastone’s chairman and chief executive Julien Hammerson, Glyn will be responsible for leading the development and execution of Calastone’s global client strategy. He will be based in London and will take up his role by the end of the year.

Prior to joining SWIFT, Glyn spent a number of years in key commercial and strategic roles at Investia—former parent of JPMorgan FundsHub, ERI Bancaire, Thomson Financial and LVMH. He joined SWIFT in 2005 to pioneer the UK funds business.

Glyn said: “Having been involved with Calastone since its inception, I am hugely excited to join its talented management team. We share a common vision to make our market a more effective, more transparent and less risky place to conduct business.

“Our mission is now to capitalise on the synergies between our clients to deliver a single, global network for delivering exciting solutions which drive operational alpha throughout the fund distribution industry.”

Hammerson added: “It gives me great pleasure to have someone of Edward’s calibre and reputation joining our business. We have worked alongside one another in various guises for a number of years and the depth and breadth of Edward’s client relationships and industry knowledge will be a great asset to helping Calastone deliver against its ambitious growth strategy. We are very much looking forward to having him join the team.”
