McCann FitzGerald has appointed partner Iain Ferguson as head of its investment management group (IMG).

Mr Ferguson succeeds Mark White in the role following Mr White’s appointment as chair of the firm in November 2023.

Both Mr Ferguson and Mr White, in addition to their new roles, will continue to support their broad client bases in Irish and international financial institutions.

In his new role, which takes effect from today, Mr Ferguson will lead a team providing a full range of legal, regulatory, corporate governance and business advisory expertise aimed at delivering integrated service to clients involved in asset management and investment funds.

He has significant expertise in structuring, establishing, and advising on a wide range of UCITS/AIFs including private equity and VC funds, private credit funds, real estate funds, infrastructure funds, ETFs, structured products, managed accounts platforms and hedge funds. He is currently an elected member of Council of Irish Funds.

McCann FitzGerald managing partner Stephen Holst said: “We are delighted to announce Iain Ferguson as our new head of the investment management group and wish him every success as he embarks on this new role within the firm.

“Iain’s leadership, fresh perspectives and significant experience in the field of investment management will enable the investment management group to continue to grow its extensive portfolio of clients.

“On behalf of the firm, I would also like to thank Mark White for the immense contribution he made in the role, and for helping to grow the group to its current market-leading position.”

Mr Ferguson added: “Ireland has a thriving funds industry, and under Mark’s leadership our team has been very much at the forefront of developments in the funds industry over a number of years.

“I’m honoured to have the opportunity to lead our growing investment management group and, with Mark and our broader team, continue to build on the success achieved to date.”
