Capita Trust Company (Jersey) Limited, part of the Capita Asset Services Division, has been appointed to act as Fiduciary Custodian to two Isle of Man Authorised Collective Investment Schemes.

Paul Horton, head of fund custody solutions at Capita Asset Services Jersey, said: “We are delighted to secure these appointments and to be able to support Capital InternationalGroup in its recent successful acquisition and in the continuing operation of the Funds.


“These appointments increase our exposure in the Isle of Man and highlight our capabilities in being able to service clients operating in different jurisdictions.”
