State Street has today announced the appointment of Mark Westwell as head of its UK Trustee and Depositary business, State Street Trustees Limited (SSTL) subject to regulatory approval. State Street adds that trustee and depositary services are a key aspect of its value proposition to clients in the UK and the company provides these services for more than 528 funds valued at over 254 billion.

London-based Westwell will be responsible for the continued growth and development of SSTL, reporting to Akbar Sheriff, Head of Global Services in the UK.

Since joining State Street in 2007, Westwell has held leadership roles in several strategic relationship management positions across the region, serving as a director of State Street Trustees Limited, State Street Infrahedge and State Street South Africa Limited.
