Goal Group, a global fintech leader in withholding tax reclamation and securities class action recovery services, has announced the appointment of industry stalwart Bryan Gray as Brand Ambassador for its APAC region.
After a highly distinguished 32-year career, serving as Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand Sales at JPMorgan Securities Services and prior to that, Head of Sales at State Street, Bryan is widely regarded as a thought-leader in the global custody arena. At Goal, he will conduct an ongoing series of service reviews with the APAC client base as part of a global drive to ensure outstanding service delivery as the company takes on increasing volumes of new business.
Stephen Everard, Chief Executive Officer, Goal Group, says: “With his unparalleled industry standing and depth of experience in asset servicing, Bryan will be a tremendous asset to us and to our client base. He will help our local team strengthen relationships, build new ones and ensure that we are meeting – and exceeding – service delivery expectations across APAC.
“Market demand for both withholding tax reclaims and securities class actions recovery services is soaring across the region. At the same time, we are bringing new cloud-based solutions to market that leverage high levels of automation to transform our clients’ process and cost models, helping them fulfil their fiduciary duty and create new revenue opportunities all while reducing costs. As business growth accelerates, I want to reassure clients that we are strengthening our team across all business functions.”
Commenting on his appointment, Bryan Gray, Brand Ambassador, APAC at Goal Group, says: “Over recent years Goal has cemented its position in the fintech space within asset servicing and I’m thrilled to join their ambitious team at this exciting time for the company and their markets. It’s evident that asset managers and custodians are recognising the need to adapt their service proposition to meet the changing expectations of today’s investors – and the potential competitive advantage in doing so. With its unique technology and expertise in both tax reclaims and shareholder litigation services, Goal has a compelling proposition for the investment community and I look forward to helping them further their service delivery excellence.”
Goal’s worldwide client base includes five of the top ten global custodians, six of the top ten global fund managers and all four US depositary banks.
