A member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales ("ICAEW") Mark has joined Ipes from Langham Hall where he was in charge of the private equity reporting team, advising clients in private equity funds, venture funds and fund of funds.
Mark says, "I joined Ipes because it has a pure private equity focus and real strength and depth when it comes to industry knowledge giving it a great ability to deliver a quality service to its clients. I was also impressed by its investment in infrastructure and a system to ensure it is a leader in service delivery rather than a follower."
Prior to Langham Hall Mark ran a number of teams at Capital Dynamics reporting fund of funds vehicles and specific client accounts.
Mark has also worked for 3i, one of the UK's largest fund managers. There he started as a fund accountant before going into a middle office role with responsibility for a number of funds and their reporting, compliance and governance.

His knowledge and experience will be invaluable in helping us to grow and to continue to deliver a first class service to our clients.
