RBS International has announced the appointment of Amelia Phillips as its new Head of Alternatives Client Management & Sales in Luxembourg.
Amelia Phillips, who has more than seventeen years’ experience in the finance industry, will be responsible for leading RBS International’s depositary function, accelerating growth and increasing client engagement in the market. As the face of Alternatives, she will also oversee the transformation of the depositary service, ensuring the successful implementation of new, market-disrupting technologies in the non-traditional securities space.
Prior to starting her new role, Ms Phillips spent five years in a leadership role at BNY Mellon, where she was responsible for servicing the bank’s depositary clients. She has also previously worked with industry bodies such as the Association of the Luxembourg Fund Industry (ALFI) to drive forward the depositary agenda within the market and shape the future of depositary services.
Commenting on her appointment, Amelia Phillips said: “I’m very much looking forward to joining RBS International at a time of such technological transformation. The business is becoming an automated, digital, cloud-based provider of depositary services and I’m excited to share these developments and market insights with our clients. As well as this, and my desire to drive forward the depositary agenda, I am also looking forward to leading my team and guiding them to become the best version of themselves. Imparting my experience, knowledge and expertise, as well as my positive and inclusive nature, I hope that I can make RBS International the best workplace and depositary service that there can be”.
“I am delighted to have attracted Amelia to lead the engagement of our Alternative clients across the markets in which we operate. Her outstanding industry knowledge and experience, together with her passion for excellence in customer service, materially complement our rapidly expanding business", added Mark Crathern, Head of NatWest Trustee and Depositary Services. “As we deliver our new digital, cloud-based platform and transition our clients to a new operating platform, Amelia will be focused on ensuring our clients continue to receive the high-quality solutions we are increasingly renowned for”.
