LAS made these two appointments to strengthen its fund and corporate services.
Neyens was previously chairman at Degroof Petercam Asset Management and a former managing director at Degroof’s Super ManCo in Luxembourg.
Bechtel was previously a partner in corporate services at accountancy firm BDO Luxembourg.
The appointments follow the recent acquisition by Australia’s Link Group of Link Asset Services from Capita, a UK-based outsourcing firm.
Commenting on the appointments, Anthony O’Keeffe, CEO of LAS, said: “We’re looking not only to grow our already successful corporate services business, but also to build our UCITS management company and alternative investment fund managers directive capability servicing fund initiators from around the globe.”
He added: “Both Jean-Luc Neyens and Cornelius Bechtel will be valuable additions to our Luxembourg team, playing key roles in helping us achieve our long-term ambitions for growth.”
