IQ-EQ Staff Change

02 November 2022

IQ-EQ is pleased to welcome Samuel Kuborn to its Luxembourg team. Samuel will take on the newly created role of Regional Chief Operating Officer, Continental Europe.

Samuel brings to IQ-EQ 26 years of experience in the investor services space, including senior roles in various areas of operations and client servicing, where he has led pan-European and global teams.

Most recently, he was Managing Director, Product & Profitability of the Trustee, Depositary & Fund Corporate Services division of RBC Investor & Treasury Services. He was also a member of its Continental Europe & Offshore Operating Committee.

In his role at IQ-EQ, Samuel will hold responsibility for day-to-day operations across the Group’s Luxembourg, France, Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium and Cyprus offices, making sure regional strategy and plans are successfully implemented.

The creation of this new leadership position reflects the ongoing regionalisation of the Group’s operating model as it seeks to ensure it has the right expertise and oversight in each of its key regions globally.

Samuel will report directly to Diana Senanayake, IQ-EQ’s new Regional CEO for Continental Europe and Managing Director for Luxembourg, who joined the business at the start of August. He will also have a dotted line into the Group Chief Operating Officer, Joanna Macleod.
