Vistra has appointed Jervis Smith as country managing director of its Luxembourg office, effective 17 September. 

Smith will be responsible for growing Vistra’s Luxembourg office together with the Vistra office in The Netherlands, in order to maximise joint opportunities between the two offices, which share a mutual base of clients and culture.

Based in Luxembourg, he will report to Vincent Bremmer, regional managing director, Europe, Vistra.

Commenting on the appointment, Bremmer said: “Emerging as a jurisdiction of choice for corporations, institutional investors and private individuals amid Brexit uncertainty, Luxembourg has become the largest fund jurisdiction in Europe, and is one of our priority markets in Europe with a strong focus on alternative investments.”
