Marcus Allen – Senior CRM
Where am I based?
I am based in Guernsey in the Channel Islands and joined PEA in 2015.
What areas of my job do I specialise in?
I specialise in back-office operations, company secretarial best practice, Guernsey licensed fund structures and fiduciary activities.
My employment history
I have over 14 years’ of dedicated private equity fund administration experience and started my career at Northern Trust in 2003 moving to Heritage International Fund Managers in September 2007. Immediately prior to joining PEA, I spent 4 years at Ipes where I was an Assistant Manager responsible for the review and authorisation of many of the company’s administrative processes.
How did I get into Fund Administration?
I was a terrible architect!!
What do the team say about my work contribution?
“Marcus’s attention to detail and speed of service delivery continue to exceed our expectations.”
What’s my favourite thing about working at PEA?
PEA is a small company, which I like, as there are real advantages. The role allows me to have full oversight of a client relationship, rather than only seeing certain aspects. Also, the “boutique” nature of the company allows us to be adaptable as a firm, which means we can offer more to our clients to ensure they get the highest level of service. Our size means we are nimble and able to make decisions very quickly. We have a great team and work with great clients.
What do I like to do in my spare time?
I used to play a bit of rugby and cricket, but not so much anymore! Now, I like to spend time with my wife and kids, or failing that, catching up with some friends, for a couple of beers over a game of rugby.
What would my perfect night out be?
With two young sons, any night out would be a perfect night out! But if I could choose, probably a nice evening with some good food, good drink and good company.
