Duquemin joins ARC
June 2, 2009 - Lynne Duquemin (pictured left) has joined Asset Risk Consultants (ARC) from Credit Suisse Guernsey. She spent 12 years at the bank where she worked closely with wealthy families and their advisers, tailoring discretionary and advisory investment solutions.
Duquemin is the latest recruit to ARC which says it has responded to a growing demand for wealth management advice by expanding to 30 people across Guernsey and Jersey. Managing director Graham Harrison said: “Our philosophy is to translate information into knowledge for our clients and this has never been more important in the investment arena.
“There is certainly demand for an independent assessment of investment structure, risk profiling, manager search and, even more so, performance monitoring from private clients, trustees and their professional advisers, so in a sense we are bucking the trend by expanding our headcount to meet demand.”
Duquemin is a qualified associate of the CFA Society of the UK and a member of the CFA Institute with broad investment experience across all asset classes. Previously she had held bond sales and dealing positions with Nippon Credit and Credit Suisse London.
ARC director Sanna-Liisa Valtanen (pictured right) said: “Her calibre and experience will make a significant contribution to our expanding team. The last 18 months or so have seen the US credit crunch transmute first into a financial meltdown and then a serious global economic slowdown. In this environment, the need for independent and unbiased financial advice has never been greater. She will help us continue to expand our client base both in the Channel Islands and further afield.”
ARC is a consulting practice in the Channel Islands founded by managing director Graham Harrison in 1995 and has a global client base.
The company assesses and monitors investment structures and performance across traditional and non-traditional asset classes and aims to demystify the investment process for clients so that they can understand and assess the risk associated with investment returns.
