IQ-EQ is pleased to announce the appointment of Bruno Noyon as Managing Director, France. This key appointment serves to support our strategic focus on growing and strengthening our French operations.
Bruno is a seasoned business leader and financial services professional, with more than 30 years’ experience spanning front, middle and back office functions in the asset/fund management, market finance, banking and investor services sectors in France.
Before joining IQ-EQ, Bruno spent over 15 years as Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President of the French investment servicing business of a listed, global financial services firm headquartered in the United States. In this role, he drove significant business transformation, including globalisation, operating model design, offshoring and process improvement, and led an international team of 450 professionals servicing more than €1 trillion in assets.
Bruno’s appointment comes at a time of strategic prioritisation and growth for IQ-EQ France, following our 2019 acquisition of Peru & Partners, a Paris-based fund administrator dedicated to the private equity market. This acquisition added fund administration, CFO services, GP and portfolio company accounting as well as valuation services to the group’s existing French private equity fund management offering.
Commenting upon his appointment with IQ-EQ, Bruno said:
“IQ-EQ has been enjoying fast-paced growth across the globe and I am excited to be joining the group as it seeks to strengthen its position in France. France is the fourth largest private equity market in the world, so naturally it is forming a key part of IQ-EQ’s future growth plans. I am keen to hit the ground running and work closely with my new colleagues, both here in France and internationally, to drive the business to continued success.”
Kiran Sinharoy, Executive Director at IQ-EQ, added:
“On behalf of IQ-EQ I am very pleased to welcome Bruno to the business. We now have an extended and highly experienced team in place in France, with the ability to offer a comprehensive range of services and solutions to our growing French client base, and having Bruno at the helm will help us bring the team together and drive continued growth. Given his strong operational leadership credentials and extensive experience within the French funds industry, we believe he brings with him the ideal expertise to transform our French business and help us leverage the huge opportunities that exist for IQ-EQ in France. I look forward to working closely with him and the rest of the team to keep building our operations within this key market.”
