Capital International Group is delighted to announce the appointment of Peter Fisher as Senior Treasury Manager reporting to Head of Finance, Paul Atherton.
Liverpool-born Peter has been based on the Isle of Man for thirteen years since relocating with his job at Barclays, where he spent 19 years working within Risk and Treasury. Peter has spent the last 10 years as a Foreign Exchange Trader on the Trading Desk at Barclays.
An accomplished endurance runner, Peter completed the Marathon Des Sables, which is known as the ‘toughest footrace on earth’ in the Sahara Desert in April this year. The race consists of six marathons back-to-back over the course of seven days, with runners carrying all their own equipment and food. By completing this incredible challenge, Peter managed to raise £6,500 for the Special Care Baby Unit (the SCBU) at Nobles Hospital, Isle of Man. Commenting on his achievement, Peter said “I am a very determined person and I like a challenge! I learned a lot about myself in the desert, and I would recommend anyone to try to take yourself out of your comfort zone. You may surprise yourself and complete something that you thought you couldn’t do. Nothing is impossible!”
This impressive attitude extends to Peter’s outlook on his new role. As Senior Treasury Manager, Peter takes responsibility for both corporate and retail FX execution, money markets and cash management; all which will be put to great use as the Group has recently applied for a banking licence under the Island’s Alternative Banking Regime. Until the Group receives the licence, Peter is putting his great experience to use in the Capital Treasury Services business.
Peter’s positive work ethic has also been reflected in his experience since joining the Group, where he has described the feel of the office as ‘positive and upbeat’.
On his appointment, Peter said, “I am delighted to join Capital International Group at this very important stage as we look to move forward with the Banking Licence Application. This is a great opportunity for me and a really exciting time to be joining the Group.”
Group Chief Executive Officer Greg Ellison said “I am delighted to welcome Peter to the Group. We’ve hired some outstanding local talent recently and Peter’s arrival is a further sign of our progress and he’ll play a really important role in our ambitious plans in the future.”
