Altum Group, a leading provider of Fund, Corporate, and Family Office solutions, has expanded in the UK moving to new offices in Mayfair, which will be led by Managing Director, Simon Drewett.

Altum’s Mayfair office provides a fully integrated fund management solution to corporate and institutional clients and intermediaries across a multi-jurisdictional platform.

Simon brings more than 25 years of industry experience and will lead Altum’s UK offering. In his role as Managing Director, he is responsible for driving growth in the jurisdiction and implementing strategic plans of the Group.

With a strong background in fund management, Simon joined from Crestbridge where he led a team providing FCA regulated fund management services to numerous fund structures and joint ventures. Prior to this, he was a Managing Partner at Kingfisher Property, a boutique London-based commercial real estate finance advisory and regulated fund management firm acquired by Crestbridge in 2018. Since then, Simon has been responsible for tripling its revenue and expanding the scope of its regulated fund management product offering.

Zena Couppey, Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are growing and making an impact in the industry and most importantly to our clients. Through our Mayfair operation we deliver a director led and responsive service built around specialist administration teams that allow us to offer a clearly differentiated client proposition. Welcome to the team Simon, we are confident in your leadership to grow our UK business and to take Altum to new levels of success.”

On his appointment Simon Drewett commented: “I am delighted to have joined Altum at a time of significant operational growth. Together with its talented team, I am committed to building on the already well-established offering to deliver exceptional services to our clients.”
