Langham Hall established the depositary business in July 2013 to coincide with the implementation of AIFMD in the UK. To date, we have been selected to act as depositary for more than 25 AIFs and we believe that our accounting led, risk based approach is a strong foundation for this new regulatory platform which includes cash monitoring and operational oversight.
Prior to joining the company, Rachael worked at Aviva Investors and was responsible for the fund accounting and reporting for 40 real estate funds and direct investments in £21 billion of real estate assets located in the UK, Europe and Asia. Prior to that Rachael was a senior finance manager at Invesco Real Estate Limited, responsible for the financial reporting on a number of real estate funds across the UK and Europe. She is a chartered accountant and a graduate of Liverpool University.
Rob Short, Managing Partner of Langham Hall, commented
"We are delighted that Rachael has chosen to work with us and with her wealth of experience she will prove to be a significant asset to our new business".
