Crestbridge launches Irish operations

irish_fundsAlternative fund administrator Crestbridge has opened an office in Dublin and hired two fund professionals.

Andrea Lennon (pictured) joins as head of funds, Ireland, while Áine Hickey joins as head of risk and compliance.

Lennon was most recently a director at FundRock Management Company in Dublin, and Hickley was business unit director at Intertrust Group from 2013 to the end of last year. 

The Irish office marks the latest addition to the firm’s international presence, following the opening of an office in New Jersey in December last year – its second office in the United States.

Michael Johnson, group head of institutional services at Crestbridge, highlighted the Irish Investment Limited Partnership (ILP) legislation, which is said to further bolster the country as an alternatives destination.

“Recent changes with the introduction of the new ILP law makes Ireland an even more attractive domicile for investors and managers and one that directly aligns with our strong private equity and real estate expertise,” he said.
