The ID Register names new Chairman
The ID Register, a hub for investor onboarding, has appointed Stuart Layzell as Chairman.
Layzell was most recently CEO at Ocorian, a global fund, corporate and private client services firm and brings international experience in regulated businesses across both fund administration and wealth management. He also has a strong track record in helping private equity backed businesses scale internationally, particularly in the technology sector.
James Lewis, Partner at Perscitus, says: “The ID Register aims to be the ‘one-and-done’ hub for KYC, Fund Subscription and FATCA-CRS across the global investment community. It is a compelling solution to global KYC requirements and has huge potential. We back this vision and looked hard for a Chairman who has real and recent top-level experience in the sector. Stuart will now help to guide and nurture the business as it invests strongly in technology, regulation, international expansion and in its alliance relationships.”
Layzell adds: “I am delighted to support Tim and his team as they scale The ID Register as an independent platform. The ID Register has great traction with over 25,000 investors using the platform and is building interesting strategic alliances with leaders in the fund formation and administration space. The ID Register team is a great blend of technology and regulatory expertise and I am delighted to be on board.”
Tim Andrews, Founder of The ID Register, says: “Great teams need people who bring diverse skills. From the first meeting with Stuart, I saw that he could support and challenge my vision for the business, based on a real understanding of our clients around the world. As the trusted hub of the global investment community, we aim to deliver consistently great service, enabled by technology. Stuart’s experience in service-led firms makes us a natural fit as we grow the 25,000 investors, fund managers and service providers who already trust our service.”
