Wilmington Trust has appointed Alex Pashley as head of Structured Finance in the UK.

Based in the firm’s London office, he joins the Global Capital Markets European business, reporting to Alan Geraghty, group vice president and head of European Operations.

Pashley’s responsibilities include overseeing the ongoing administration of the firm’s European structured finance transactions as well as growing its international franchise and offerings to its European client base, which today totals more than 480 organizations. Given the continued uncertainty around LIBOR disruption and Brexit, Pashley will join the team preparing customers for any impacts to the structured finance marketplace. He will also support business expansion in the firm’s Dublin and Paris offices.

With 28 years in the corporate trust industry, including nine years with the Wells Fargo corporate trust business and the last four years leading the group in Europe, Pashley brings a unique skill set to his role with Wilmington Trust. He has considerable experience supporting U.S. and European clients across many sectors, including banking, asset management, corporate and hedge funds. Pashley will lead a team of nine professionals in the London office, which counts approximately 60 staff members.

“With his in-depth knowledge of the debt capital and structured finance markets, adding Alex to our Global Capital Markets leadership team will be a great benefit for our clients and the firm’s European business,” said Alan Geraghty, head of European Operations, Global Capital Markets.

Wilmington Trust offers specialized trust services for capital markets financing structures, customized institutional investment capabilities, and institutional custody services for clients in more than 90 countries.
