Mr Bohan said: “Further to what was a record year of growth for the Apex Group, we are delighted to welcome Barry O’Brien to our Ireland business development team.
“Domiciled funds in Ireland have exceeded over €3.5 trillion last year and we look forward to capitalising on the industry success as we roll out our single-source solution across ManCo services, fund administration and depositary and custody services.”
