Graziano will help spearhead expansion in UK and Ireland
Anna Graziano has joined Allfunds as head of operations and
propositions to help the firmâ€™s expansion in
UK and Ireland. She joins from Calastone where she was formerly
managing director of strategic relations.
Graziano is the fourth and final member of the new management
team which is headed by Stephen Mohan. In addition to Mohan
joining from Cofunds, Allfunds has also appointed Danny Wynn
from Legal & General and Bradley Lewis from Cofunds.
Mohan said: â€œAnna Graziano and her
operational team will be delivering the services at the core of
our UK offering. She will be working to design, implement and
deliver new services which will make Allfunds Bank the default
provider for full service funds administration to those wealth
managers concerned to reduce the cost and risk of undertaking
such business in the UK.â€
The firm is targeting wealth managers in the UK with a view to
providing a highly efficient, cost and risk effective solution
for funds trading. With costs well below those of existing
platforms and a funds research base which supports its clients
worldwide, Allfunds hopes to make progress with those business
looking for a more cost and risk effective solution.
Graziano worked as head and then director of client
relationship management at Calastone from early 2009 until her
appointment as managing director of strategic relations in
October 2012. Hitherto, from June 1999 she worked at Ford Motor
Company, Cartwright CC and then SimCorp in product, sales and
account management roles.
