Citi boosts custody and fund services team


Citi has made three new senior hires to its custody and fund services team in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

Sean Tuffy joins as head of market and regulatory intelligence for the EMEA region, based in Dublin. He will be responsible for analysing the effects of the global markets and regulatory developments on custody and fund services.

Tuffy joins from Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH), where he was head of strategy for Europe and Asia.

Martin Jacobs joins Citi as data product manager for the EMEA region. In this role, he will support the implementation and improvement of the new Citi Velocity Clarity market intelligence programme. He will also work on identifying other ways to improve Citi’s data management offering.

Previously, he spent 10 years at State Street, most recently leading the EMEA digitisation strategy for client engagement.

Both Tuffy and Jacobs will report to Pervaiz Panjwani, Citi’s head of custody and fund services for EMEA.

Gareth Myburgh is joining Citi as exchange-traded funds (ETF) product manager, working on advancing ETF offerings within the funds and custody platform.

Myburgh brings 15 years of experience in fund administration and ETF services. He also joins from BBH, where he was a senior ETF manager, responsible for the design and implementation of operating models to support ETF clients.

All three roles are newly-created within the firm. They are the latest in a string of hires to the custody and fund services team, following the appointment of Matthew Bax in June and Aziz Ari in February.
