Sanne, the specialist provider of outsourced corporate and fund administration, reporting and fiduciary services, is pleased to announce the appointment of Justin Partington to a newly created role of global head of funds with immediate effect.  

Mr Partington is an experienced executive in fund services, having held leadership roles for 10 years in a range of fund administration businesses across the alternative asset sector in Cayman, London and the Channel Islands. Most recently he served as commercial director of a European private equity fund administration business where he successfully grew top-line revenue growth and led the launch of new AIFMD regulatory and depositary services.  

Dean Godwin, chief executive officer at Sanne, said: ‘We are delighted to welcome Justin to the Sanne leadership team. He brings a wealth of experience across the alternative asset space that will enable us to further enhance our offering to clients and strengthen Sanne’s reputation as a leading provider of global administration services.’  

Mr Partington is responsible for the strategic development of Sanne’s multi-jurisdictional funds capability across the company’s alternative asset classes, comprising private equity, private debt & capital markets and real estate.  

‘I am looking forward to working with the talented and specialist experts across Sanne’s funds divisions, and within the executive team to identify opportunities that expand our client service delivery and product range to meet our clients’ needs,’ added Mr Partington.  

The appointment comes at a significant period of development for Sanne since listing on the Main Market on the London Stock Exchange in April 2015. Sanne has continued to invest in its operational capabilities and infrastructure in order to drive organic growth as well as reviewing acquisitions which assist in the achievement of strategic objectives.
