Ireland, 8 May 2024 – Vistra, a leading provider of essential business services, is proud to announce it has secured its authorisation from the Central Bank of Ireland (CBI) to provide fund administration services from Ireland.

The team is supported by cutting-edge fund accounting software and Vistra’s own bespoke investor servicing portal, VFunds, a fully integrated digital platform enabling investment managers, investors, and other related parties to receive the information they need in a fast, transparent and efficient way.

To support the expansion of Vistra’s global fund administration network, Vistra Funds Services (Ireland) has appointed Aimee Gill, CEO and Head of Fund Accounting, Paul McDonald, Head of Investor Services and Jacqueline Evbodaghe, Head of Risk and Compliance.

Cliona O'Faolain, Managing Director, Vistra Ireland notes, “We’re delighted to have obtained this license from the CBI and welcoming Aimee,  Paul and Jacqueline to these key leadership roles will help us further elevate our business. Ireland is an integral hub for the investment funds industry and an important gateway between our clients in the US, UK, and Europe, as well as a jurisdiction increasingly on the radar of those based in Asia. The license enables us to better serve our clients across Vistra globally, strengthening our foothold within Europe and opening the Irish market so that we can contribute to the growth ambitions of new and existing fund clients.”

Abdel Hmitti, Vistra’s newly appointed Global Head of Funds says, “This significant milestone enables us to provide the end-to-end administrative services to support our clients throughout the lifecycle of their funds and partner with them as they set up, run and expand their fund operations in more places than ever before.
