, the global corporate service provider for trust, fiduciary and other services, has announced that Jane Pearce will join its Jersey office as managing director. She replaces Chris Burton, who will move to Vistra’s Singapore office as managing director after holding the reins in Jersey for five years.

Pearce will lead the corporate, fund administration and private client trust business on the island in her new role. Before joining Vistra, she worked with the States of Jersey Chief Ministers Department as part of a team consulting on the proposed changes to Jersey’s regulatory environment for the funds industry.

Previously, Pearce was a partner and group director of Ogier Group. Her experience in administering and accounting for complex investment structures includes positions at Deutsche Bank, Gartmore and Kleinwort Benson. She started her accountancy career with Ernst & Young in 1991.

“With Jane’s experience in the funds area and a mandate to grow the business in Jersey both organically and via acquisition, we are convinced that Jane will be a very important asset to build Vistra’s business both locally and contribute to the growth of the whole group,” said the firm's chief executive, Martin Crawford.

“I am looking forward to the challenge of managing Vistra Jersey,” Pearce said. “We are in an excellent position to grow and I am excited to be on board as part of a great team locally, and internationally as part of a top four global CTS player.”

At the start of the year, Vistra Group rebranded as the firm continued to expand, in part by several acquisitions.
