Stenham has appointed Damian Cocking as senior relationship manager for the Channel Islands and Isle of Man while Marco Gebhard has been hired for the European market.
The alternative wealth management group has a growing institutional client base in the Channel Islands and Europe, working with family offices, asset managers, private banks, trust companies and institutions directly and through consultants.
Cocking previously worked for Goldman Sachs as head of fiduciary relationships where he built a client base for the bank in a number of offshore jurisdictions. He began his career at Merrill Lynch before joining Abacus.
He will be responsible for marketing the Stenham products to trust companies, private banks and asset managers in the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.
Prior to joining Stenham, Gebhard headed conception and fundraising for German fund companies and was director of Bankhaus Wölbern, a German private bank managing an institutional client base.
Gebhard will take charge of developing the institutional market in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, focusing on family offices, private banks, insurance companies and pension funds.
"The Channel Islands and Europe are important markets for Stenham and we are seeing a growing appetite for alternative investment products, particularly from the institutional market," said Harry Wulfsohn, head of institutional business development at Stenham.
