Oyster Consulting to Open European Office
RICHMOND, Va., September 2, 2015 /Marketwire/ — Oyster Consulting announced today that Allen Foley will open and lead its first European office in Luxembourg. As the global economy and regulatory environment continues to evolve and becomes more complex, Oyster has responded by expanding its customized consulting services to firms that reach across both sides of the Atlantic with consultants in the US, Bermuda and Europe. The new office will be Oyster’s 16th location.
Oyster Consulting (Europe) will provide advice and services encompassing Directorships, Fund & Corporate Governance, Fund Compliance, Broker-Dealer Compliance, AIFMD and UCITS, Fund Structuring, Service Provider Selection, Offshore Advisory Services, International Fund/Compliance analysis as well as being a liaison between the U.S., Caribbean and European-domiciled firms.
Allen Foley’s experience in both Luxembourg and Bermuda gives him an uncommon perspective into the financial services industry due to his range of exposure of directorships, compliance, management companies, investment managers, stock exchanges and fund administrators.
“Having worked with Allen in Bermuda, it is obvious that he is the best person to lead us into Europe,” explains Buddy Doyle, Oyster Consulting CEO. “Allen is a talented professional who believes in developing deep relationships with our clients by providing the highest level of service and valuable advice.”
The Luxembourg office will partner with Oyster Consulting’s U.S. and Bermuda industry experts as they continue to ensure that Oyster delivers high quality results and tailored client services.
“Our firm has responded to our clients’ needs for high-quality consultants in Europe. The opening of this office is in line with the future broadening and evolution of the compliance function in the global financial services industry.” Foley said.
