Moore Stephens appoints new CEO

Angus Taylor has been appointed chief executive officer at Moore Stephens (Jersey) Limited, the newly formed holding company for all of Moore Stephens’ businesses in the island.

The appointment follows the business’ recent restructure, which saw different departments become individual businesses in their own right.

Mr Taylor is an experienced wealth management professional with extensive experience of running high-performing banking, investment, fund and trust businesses across multiple jurisdictions. He was previously the managing director of Kleinwort Benson and a director at JTC and holds an MBA from Sheffield Hallam University. He has particular experience and expertise in change management.

He will combine his new duties with his existing role as managing director of one of the subsidiary businesses, Moore Stephens Trust and Corporate Services.

“The recent rearrangement of our business lines will benefit our clients but we are also keen to maintain the things that made Moore Stephens a success in Jersey,” he said.

“This means utilising our diverse network of professionals and the wide range of expertise we have to offer. Keeping our range of individual businesses operating in concert will be a key focus of my new role and I’m really looking forward to working with all of the different Moore Stephens’ businesses in the future.”

Chairman of Moore Stephens International Limited, Richard Moore, said: “Our firm in Jersey is evolving to meet the needs of our clients. The restructure of the business represents a clear and positive commitment to the demands of the financial services environment and Angus’ appointment as group CEO is another crucial and positive step forward.”
