With a long history of supporting managers and their investors in the Build to Rent sector, Crestbridge announces it has appointed Marcelo Gazzi as a Director within the Institutional Governance Services team, as part of the company’s commitment to supporting quality oversight across its client base.

In his new role, Marcelo will play a key role in Crestbridge’s Director Services team, supporting the evolution of the business’ Governance Services proposition, which spans its Management Company, Director, Client Compliance, Depository, Trustee, Appointed Representative and Operator business units.  

Marcelo will also champion Crestbridge’s ongoing commitment to quality and service, drawing on Group technology and expertise to ensure clients, predominantly in the real estate and private equity space, continue to receive a cutting-edge suite of governance and oversight solutions tailored to their needs.

With over 15 years’ experience in cross-border financial services, Marcelo started his career in the asset management sector in Brazil but has spent the past 12 years working for HSBC in both the UK and Jersey. During that time, he has held roles predominantly in commercial and corporate banking, including in client onboarding, leveraged finance and hedge fund credit analysis, supporting the needs of multinationals and corporate service provider clients. Most recently he was Wholesale Chief Administration Officer for HSBC’s UK non-ring-fenced bank and its Channel Islands and Isle of Man operation. He is also a member of the Chartered Governance Institute (CGI).

“Providing robust, innovative governance support lies at the heart of our service proposition, as we continue to see the governance needs of clients across our private equity and real estate service lines become increasingly complex and sophisticated. It’s a pleasure to welcome Marcelo to the team. His experience working within a dynamic, global corporate banking environment will further enhance our already experienced senior team as we continue to evolve and develop our governance services platform for clients.”
