Stephanie Miller, CEO of Intertrust, commented:
“The acquisition of Viteos is obviously the biggest highlight of this reporting period. The acquisition is a competitive game-changer for Intertrust and accelerates our strategy to become a global leader in tech-enabled corporate and fund solutions. We have initiated the integration process, are continuing to add technological innovations to our service offering, and leveraging Viteos’ offshore Centres of Excellence in India, we have fast-tracked our standardisation, centralisation and shared services initiatives. While combining the two companies, we continue to focus on providing excellent client service and delivering on our guidance.
“I am satisfied with the performance over the first half of the year, in which we report modest growth. Based on our forecast for the remainder of the year, I am confident that we will deliver on our full year guidance. We continue to perform well in a competitive market, with Funds being the highest growth driver and Corporates reporting a strong second quarter. We continue to execute on our strategic plans and, following demand from clients, we opened a new office in Shenzhen, China, and expanded our global footprint by opening an office in Paris, France, to provide Corporate and Fund services. On the people side, Global Head of Funds, Patrick O’Brien, and Chief Commercial Officer, Ian Lynch, both came on board to lead our client-centric commercial strategy and drive business growth.”
