Ocorian, a specialist in corporate and fiduciary services, fund administration and capital markets, has appointed Kareem Robinson as Client Director – Capital Markets in the Cayman Islands.

Robinson is an experienced offshore financial services professional with over 20 years of technical and managerial experience in structured and asset finance, trust and company administration, alternative investments and regulatory compliance and oversight. He also has significant regulatory experience and has previously held the position of Deputy Head of the Securities Supervision Division at the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA).

Jason Gerlis, Regional Head of Americas, says: “We are delighted to welcome Kareem who is a valuable addition to our team. He oversees our Cayman Islands structured finance team and is focused on ensuring service excellence, accelerating growth, and finding proactive solutions to help our clients maximise their business and investment performance.”

In his roles at CIMA, Robinson had direct responsibility and oversight of both the off-site and on-site monitoring processes of the Securities Supervision Division and was involved in several key regulatory initiatives. He has a lucid understanding of the Cayman Islands regulatory framework and AML/CFT regime.

Robinson adds: “Ocorian’s exciting and ambitious expansion plans for future growth means this is a tremendous time to join the business.”

“Making sure we continue to enhance our proactive client service delivery and develop and retain key talent are priorities for me. I am already enjoying working with Jason and the whole Ocorian team, locally and globally, as we pursue our exciting growth strategy.”
