Investoo Group Appoints General Counsel as the Business Progresses with Expansion Plan

Investoo Group is happy to announce the appointment of James McCarthy as General Counsel to provide strategic and risk-sensitive legal advice.

James will play an integral role in formalising internal governance policies and ensure compliance with relevant legal and regulatory requirements.

In his former role as Senior Counsel at the helm of the legal team at Aztec Group, James consulted on a variety of matters across multiple jurisdictions.

James commented:

“I am delighted to be joining Investoo Group at such a pioneering time.

The opportunity to contribute to the continued growth of a company which has quickly established itself at the forefront of financial marketing was simply too good to pass up.

Driving growth and adding value, whilst ensuring the highest standards of conduct is my main goal.”

James is motivated to add value through a deep understanding of the Investoo Group business model and its particularities. He explains:

To really add value as an in-house lawyer, you must take time to understand the business.

To deliver practical, commercial and risk-sensitive legal advice to Investoo Group, I will become fully acquainted with the ventures and the innovative finance sectors Investoo Group deals with.”

David Merry, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Investoo Group has warmly welcomed James’ skill set and vision. David comments:

“I’m delighted to have James with us. The field of modern finance requires a fast-growing and agile business, but also one that respects ever-evolving legislation, regulation and licensing requirements.

The sound legal experience that James can provide will also be essential as we successfully progress with our expansion plan.”

Throughout August, Investoo Group announced two further strategic key hires. James Beale joined as Chief Finance Officer, and Jamie Beadle was appointed as the Chief Operating Officer. All hires will play key roles in expanding and diversifying the company’s diverse global portfolio.
