Allfunds hires new head of ops

Anna Graziano has joined Allfunds as head of operations and propositions to help the firm’s expansion in UK and Ireland. She joins from Calastone where she was formerly managing director of strategic relations.

Graziano is the fourth and final member of the new management team which is headed by Stephen Mohan. In addition to Mohan joining from Cofunds, Allfunds has also appointed Danny Wynn from Legal & General and Bradley Lewis from Cofunds.

Mohan said: “Anna Graziano and her operational team will be delivering the services at the core of our UK offering. She will be working to design, implement and deliver new services which will make Allfunds Bank the default provider for full service funds administration to those wealth managers concerned to reduce the cost and risk of undertaking such business in the UK.”

The firm is targeting wealth managers in the UK with a view to providing a highly efficient, cost and risk effective solution for funds trading. With costs well below those of existing platforms and a funds research base which supports its clients worldwide, Allfunds hopes to make progress with those business looking for a more cost and risk effective solution.

Graziano worked as head and then director of client relationship management at Calastone from early 2009 until her appointment as managing director of strategic relations in October 2012. Hitherto, from June 1999 she worked at Ford Motor Company, Cartwright CC and then SimCorp in product, sales and account management roles.
