Fund administrator Saltgate SA has appointed Jean-François Flamant to its board in Luxembourg.
Jean-François – known throughout the funds industry as Jeff – joined Saltgate as its Head of Depositary last year.
He has over two decades’ experience in financial services. He oversees Saltgate’s depositary servicing for fund managers to help drive Saltgate’s client service.

‘It’s great to be joining Saltgate SA’s board. In my time in the financial world, I’ve been aware of Saltgate’s reputation for offering a personalised, flexible client experience – something that my time here has confirmed.’
