Posted on April 01, 2020David Higgins Joins Investment Management Consultancy as Managing Director in the UK
Citisoft, a global investment management consulting firm, has announced the hire of David Higgins as Managing Director in their UK practice.
Citisoft’s portfolio of asset management clients continues to expand globally and David’s hire will strengthen the firm’s overall presence in Europe. Under David’s leadership, Citisoft plans to expand its delivery team based in London and capitalize on the firm’s longstanding reputation as a consulting leader in the UK financial services market.
“We’re excited to announce David’s hire to strengthen and broaden our presence in Europe. We continue to see both UK-based and global asset managers search for an experienced consulting partner as their operating models and technology rapidly evolve,” said Tom Secaur, COO of Citisoft. “David’s experience and leadership will help us meet the needs of our clients and the broader market while continuing to grow our global presence.”
David joins Citisoft with over 20 years of experience in asset management technology and operations. From 2005-2010, David was a consultant in Citisoft’s UK practice. Since that time, David has assumed senior responsibilities working for RBC, HSBC, Merian Global Investors, and Aviva Investors as the Head of Global Transformation, Operating Model and Suppliers.
“David’s 20+ years of experience in our space, coupled with his knowledge of the UK marketplace and pre-existing knowledge of Citisoft make him the perfect candidate to lead our UK practice,” said Paul Migliore, CEO of Citisoft. “We are absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to bring David back to the firm in a senior leadership position. Under David’s leadership, we look forward to expanding our delivery team in the UK and providing on-the-ground service and experience to our global clients.”
This announcement follows the opening of Citisoft’s first Canadian office in 2018. Since that time, the firm has seen steady growth in both their client-base in North America as well as the number of clients in need of a consulting partner with deep experience in global markets. Citisoft has operated in London since 1986 and this key hire will capitalize on both Citisoft’s expertise in the UK as well as the firm’s need to meet the needs of clients with growing global footprints.
