Tom is a seasoned corporate/commercial solicitor with considerable international and financial services experience, predominantly as a partner in international law firms in the City of London.

This appointment underpins the Company’s ongoing commitment to promoting the highest professional standards in everything we do including regulatory compliance and corporate governance”.

The business plan is to continue to increase our assets under management and my focus will be on assisting the CEO in ensuring we have robust systems in place to manage AKJ’s significant expansion. Also as we drive forward we need to consider whether we expand beyond our current EEA boundaries.
