We are delighted to announce the appointment of Joe McBurney as Business Development Director to support new business development for Funds, Active Wealth and Corporate Services.

Based in London, Joe will work closely with the Active Wealth team in Jersey, reporting to Henry Kierulf, and in collaboration with David Rudge, the newly appointed Managing Director of Active Wealth in the UK.

Over the past 20 years, Joe has enhanced his expertise in the Trust and Fiduciary industries in Jersey, the British Virgin Islands, Switzerland, the UK and Singapore. Most recently, he spent eight years in senior management positions for independent trust companies leading corporate and fund administration services projects.

Joe McBurney’s appointment comes as ZEDRA anticipates triple digit revenue growth in 2021 and plans to capitalise on the UK’s growing levels of wealth. With the recent acquisitions and rebranding of Global Expansion service provider, Fitzgerald & Law, and Institutional Pension Scheme Governance firm, Inside Pensions, ZEDRA is perfectly positioned to service both individual and corporate clients, with London serving as a central hub for its global offices.

Ivo Hemelraad, ZEDRA Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are very pleased to welcome Joe to the ZEDRA team. As we continue to expand our offering in the UK and globally, his wealth of experience and proven track record will undoubtedly make him invaluable to the company.”

Commenting on his new role, Joe McBurney said: “I am delighted to be a part of this exciting journey and leverage my knowledge and experience for the benefit of ZEDRA’s clients. Starting this adventure virtually could seem daunting but the London team has welcomed me with open arms, and I look forward to meeting everyone in person soon.”
