Link Asset Services names new UK funds business leaders
May 7, 2019

Link Asset Services reports this morning that it has made two senior appointments to its UK funds business.

Karl Midl has been appointed as Managing Director of Link Fund Solutions Limited (LFS), while Andrew Lelliott has been appointed as Managing Director of Link Fund Administration Limited & Link Financial Investments Limited. Midl replaces Peter Hugh-Smith, who had held the position of Managing Director of Link Fund Solutions since 2014. Both appointments are subject to FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) approval.

Reporting to Chris Addenbrooke, CEO of Link Fund Solutions, Midl will be responsible for the Authorized Fund Manager (AFM) business which provides independent authorized corporate director, authorized contractual scheme operator and authorized unit trust manager services for investment managers who are looking to manage client assets within UK regulated funds. 

Based in London, Midl joined Link Asset Services in 1995 and has held a position on the Board of LFS since 2002. He is currently the Board Director responsible for all product, change, and relationship management activities. He has previously held a number of executive roles including Operations Director and Programme Director where he has been instrumental in the operational design of the LFS business, and the selection of major outsourcing arrangements.

Lelliott, also reporting to Chris Addenbrooke, assumes overall responsibility for UK investor administration services supporting a wide range of fund vehicles, distribution models and investor servicing arrangements for investment managers and asset owners. Link describes this as a strategically key area of the LFS business in the UK.  

Lelliott joined Link Group in 2018 having spent more than 30 years in financial services, holding senior positions within fund manager, transfer agency & trust bank organizations.
