Suntera Global has appointed Alex Stokoe as head of funds in the Isle of Man as part of the firm’s continued focus on its strategic growth ambitions.

In his new role, Stokoe (pictured) will lead a team of expert practitioners in providing high-calibre fund services, including administration, regulatory services, accounting and corporate governance. He will also work with colleagues across Suntera’s global network to support the continued growth of the firm’s internationally focussed book of fund business, spanning private equity, real estate, hedge and other alternative asset classes.

With more than a decade of experience in financial services, he was previously associate director at Apex Fund Services Isle of Man. He has also worked at Federated Hermes, Fiera Real Estate UK and Schroders.

Ryan Taylor, head of funds at Suntera Global, said: “Alex joins Suntera with an impressive resume, bringing considerable knowledge of the cross-border funds sector to the role, gained from working across multiple jurisdictions. His depth of experience will add greatly to our Isle of Man office as we look to continue to bolster our alternative fund capabilities in the jurisdiction and support the wider growth of our funds business across our global operation, providing global fund managers with a premium, tailored and expert service.”
