Societe Generale Securities Services (SGSS) has appointed Stephen Doyle as London-based head of institutional sales for asset managers and insurers in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Based in London, his appointment is effective immediately.

He joins SGSS from Northern Trust where he was sales manager for global fund services in the UK. He is responsible for the commercial development of SGSS’ UK franchise in the asset management and insurance sectors and he reports to Michael Le Garignon, head of sales, business development & relationship management at SGSS in the UK.

“The UK is a leading global financial services centre and the second-largest fund management market in the world,” says Le Garignon. “Following our approval from the UK regulators to offer trustee and depositary services in the UK for UCITS and alternative investment funds, SGSS is investing to provide operational efficiencies and global expertise through a range of integrated client solutions, including strategic outsourcing solutions, to asset managers and insurers in the UK.”
