EY in the Czech Republic recently significantly strengthened its WAM team, particularly in the area of investment funds, asset management and pensions, by welcoming on board Alena Šebestová, who between 2003 and 2017 worked at the Securities Commission, the Czech National Bank and at the European platforms ESMA and EIOPA. „By strengthening our team and expanding our services we are reacting to a growing demand from our customers in the area of comprehensive capital markets solutions“, Martin Majdloch added.
Alena Šebestová welcomes her new role: „If investors and financial institutions want to grow and increase their returns in our complicated regulatory environment, they need to consider a comprehensive approach, whether it concerns operating models, new products or increasing efficiency.”
EY’s WAM services are targeted for financial institutions (insurance companies, investment and pension funds, trusts, banks, brokers, depositaries, etc.) as well as individual clients (companies, private equity, families and foundations) and public institutions (municipalities, public funds including EU funds).
