Vistra, today announced the appointment of Paul Sewell as Compliance Director, UK, Ireland and Channel Islands, effective immediately. Based in Jersey, Paul will be responsible for the strategic direction and implementation of Vistra’s compliance strategy in the region. He will play a critical role in ensuring Vistra continues its strong track record of meeting international compliance standards and local regulatory requirements.
Paul has more than 30 years of experience in the finance industry, primarily involved in the provision of fiduciary services, having previously worked for some of the leading financial services providers including Deloitte and Citigroup. He has served as an executive board director for four trust companies since 2000, including Chiltern, which founded Vistra in 2006 through the management buy-in of its private client business. During this time he has been a registered “principal person” with the Jersey Financial Services Commission.
With his primary role as a trust practitioner, he focused on the delivery of excellent client service to both individuals and family offices and ensured appropriate corporate governance, regulatory adherence and oversight. More recently Paul shifted his focus more toward risk management and compliance, working on the development and implementation of appropriate business strategies.
Paul is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (FCIS) and a Member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (TEP).
“I am delighted to welcome Paul to Vistra’s Group Compliance team. Paul has a superb track record of working in a highly regulated environment and brings with him a great mix of operational experience, leadership and technical knowledge,” commented Vistra’s Chief Compliance Officer, Tanya Scott-Tomlin. She continued, “I look forward to working with him to enhance our already robust compliance framework and continue to ensure Vistra’s compliance with internal policies and external regulations.”
