"We are delighted to expand Sean's role within the new entity, providing continuity to our team," said Glenn Henderson, chief executive officer of Butterfield Fulcrum.

Matthews Names Hartley Chief Financial Officer
David A. Hartley has joined Matthews International Capital Management, an asset management firm that specializes in Asia, as chief financial officer.
A 25-year veteran of the financial services industry, Hartley was previously chief accounting officer at Invesco, responsible for corporate accounting and financial reporting to Invesco's senior managing directors and board of directors. Before that, he was chief financial officer of Invesco's institutional and global divisions. He joined Invesco in 1991.
Hartley began his career at KPMG in London in 1982 and five years later joined the firm's Atlanta office, where he worked as a senior manager in the international auditing practice.
"We are extremely pleased to welcome David to our management team," said William Hackett, chief executive officer of Matthews. "As Matthews seeks to expand its global footprint, I am confident that David's broad financial experience and global expertise will serve the firm well."
Hartley said he decided to join Matthews because it is "a leader in investing in Asia and is extremely well-positioned for growth. I look forward to working with the Matthews team to help the company execute its strategy and meet its short- and long-term goals."
F-Squared Names Carey President of Retirement
F-Squared Investments has appointed Bill Carey president of its newly formed retirement solutions unit.
F-Squared said that Carey "has a long and distinguished career within the defined contribution and retirement segments," pointing to his position as president of Fidelity Investments' 401(k) business and as head of institutional retirement at Bank of America.
In his new role, Carey is responsible for F-Squared's customized, private-labeled target-date strategies and funds, as well as collective trust funds and other investment solutions.
Under Carey's direction, F-Squared will seek to partner with financial services firms that have a product and distribution commitment to the retirement market, and then develop additional customized, private-labeled target-date offerings.
"We plan to offer firms a next-generation solution that can provide financial services and investment firms an immediate and differentiated entrÃ©e into the retirement market and the $2 trillion in assets expected to be allocated to target date funds by 2015," Carey said.
He added: "While target-date funds are here to stay, the failure to meet client expectations of asset protection in 2008 exposed some flaws with so-called 'first-generation' target-date funds. The next-generation solution needs to be able to protect client assets during severe market downturns. F-Squared's investment offerings and unique business model is the perfect platform to deliver such a solution."
Howard Present, chief executive officer of F-Squared, noted that clients had been asking the firm to move into the retirement market for nearly two years. F-Squared took its time to find the perfect candidate to take the helm, Present said.
"We believe we found that leader in Bill Carey. Bill understands and is in tune with the market, has already built a multi-billion-dollar business, and knows how to leverage F-Squared's product capabilities and business model to build out a world-class retirement company."
