Gonzalo Jalles, CEO, Cayman FinanceHarneys is pleased to announce that Gonzalo Jalles, who has been of for the past two years, will join the firm as Head of Fiduciary and New Services in Cayman later this year. In this role, Gonzalo will lead the development of the company’s fiduciary and corporate services offering in Cayman and beyond, and will work closely with the legal team in assisting clients with complex structures and matters which require broad legal and financial expertise.

“We are thrilled to have someone of Gonzalo’s international stature, professional background and expertise join Harneys,” said Cayman Managing Partner Marco Martins. “Gonzalo is highly experienced in complex financial and commercial matters, having been CEO of a major bank and worked in several financial organisations during his distinguished professional career. He will bring to our firm and our clients the type of expertise, energy and perspective which truly adds value and distinguishes our offering from other firms.”

Gonzalo, who prior to his tenure at Cayman Finance served for almost six years as CEO of Cayman, commented: “I am excited to join Harneys to develop and expand its services. I have enjoyed working with Harneys in Cayman Finance and other projects and I am convinced it is the kind of growing and progressive organisation with which I want to work.”

Prior to his role with HSBC in Cayman Gonzalo worked in HSBC’s London, Bermuda and Argentina offices. He also served as President of the Cayman Islands Bankers’ Association from 2009 to 2012. Before joining HSBC, he worked at Santander Investments, developing the firm’s asset management business. He holds a Chartered Financial Analyst designation.

“Gonzalo is an exceptional promoter of Cayman and someone who brings enormous intellect and calm analysis to bear on discussion concerning the relevance and importance of Cayman—as well as the BVI, and other reputable IFCs—to the global financial, economic and social communities,” Martins added. “He understands what we do, why clients need and use us, and how we can best help and add value.”

Gonzalo announced last week that he would step down from his Cayman Finance role in mid-November 2014.
