Legal and compliance whizz joins FundRock

FundRock has appointed Louise Harris as head of legal and compliance for its Irish branch.

Harris brings expertise in fund law and regulation, including product structuring, trading, corporate governance and regulatory reporting, and brings local legal and regulatory experience to the firm.

Formally a barrister, she moved from private practice into the financial services sector around 10 years ago.

Since then, Harris has held several senior compliance positions at investment firms, including spending eight years at Abbey Capital Limited as as head of legal and compliance and then as general counsel.

According to FundRock, the appointment is part of a long-term strategy to improve its investment management services for Irish-domiciled funds.

Ross Thomson, director of FundRock’s Irish branch, said: “FundRock has been servicing Irish funds since 2012 and we continue to invest in our people and our knowledge in this market.”

She added: “Louise Harris’s expertise will help us realise our objective to offer our global clients a value-added solution for all their investment management needs in Ireland and across our other European locations.”

Harris commented: “Funds domiciled in Ireland are required to be managed and governed to the highest of standards. FundRock, with its long heritage in fund governance developed over 80 years, is very well positioned in this regard. Its robust platforms were developed with an investment banking expertise and its governance systems continue to be developed with award winning innovative regtech.”
