25 Mar OBSIDIAN – A NEW APPROACH TO FUND ADMINISTRATION
Obsidian Fund Services Limited’s launch brings a new approach to fund administration in Guernsey as Jody Newark and her team establish a new independent locally owned fund administration business.
Obtaining regulatory approval from the GFSC just last month, Obsidian launches with a clarity of purpose and a clear mission – to make fund administration in Guernsey synonymous with service and sustainability.
Obsidian seeks to set a new benchmark for quality in the Guernsey market by combining bespoke client service; innovation in delivery; and an evolved approach using the latest technology and practices. Obsidian’s incorporation of sustainability at ground zero provides environmental, social and governance reporting and monitoring solutions that can naturally evolve with clients.
At Obsidian’s helm is CEO, Jody Newark, whose experience spans 20 years in the funds industry. Not being one to sit on her laurels, Jody holds several professional investment charters in support of her operational expertise. Jody exemplifies commitment achieving all this, while raising a family of three. Incredible.
Explaining her rationale for bringing Obsidian to the market, Jody said:
"Obsidian was created to meet a market need for boutique, high quality administration services specifically catering to sophisticated global clients, specialist managers, and family offices"
Dr Andy Sloan, Non-Executive Chairman of Obsidian said:
"I was impressed when Jody explained her vision of service and sustainability. Knowing her well, I know she has the commitment, experience and importantly the passion to deliver her vision, and in doing so make Obsidian a jewel in Guernsey’s fund administration crown.”
