Gemini Capital Management (Ireland) Limited (GemCap) is delighted to announce the appointment of Brian Ormonde Murphy as the Head of Compliance for the business. He has over 15 years’ experience working within the financial services sector in Ireland and the UK, in a variety of fields from client services to regulatory reporting and compliance, working with a wide array of regulators throughout Europe.
Prior to working with GemCap, Brian worked with AFEX Markets Europe Ltd, an Irish MiFID II investment firm, as Head of Compliance & Risk for all European activities working closely on Central Bank of Ireland authorisation, BREXIT transitioning and rolling out operations across the EEA region. Previously, he worked in regulatory reporting and compliance in Broadridge (formerly FundAssist), mainly focusing on UCITS fund documentation, with adhoc projects such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) implementation, while completing an MSc in Compliance through University College Dublin.
Brian is the holder of two law related degrees from Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) and is a Certified Data Protection Officer (CDPO), Certified Financial Crime Prevention Practitioner (CFCPP) and is a Fellow of the Association of Compliance Officer in Ireland (FCOI).
Commenting on the appointment, Conor Hoey, Managing Director of GemCap in Dublin, said:
“The appointment of Brian underlines our commitment to our clients to provide exceptional service and oversight in all areas. We have continued to invest in and build our business with great people at the heart of everything we do. Brian brings years of experience in many critical areas that will assist all of our managers who sit on the GemCap platform.”
Stuart Alexander, GemCap Group CEO, added:
“We have built a great business in Dublin in recent years, and this is just another example of the type of investment in people and processes that we are making to continue this success. As more and more Investment Managers look to outsource their requirements for Oversight and Management, thereby reducing their risk, GemCap has created a fully integrated Funds solution that incorporates this with its Distribution knowledge and network.”
Brian has been approved by the Central Bank of Ireland as Head of Compliance (PCF-12) and as Designated Person with responsibility for Regulatory Compliance (PCF-39F).
