Paul McNaughton RIP – An Appreciation

The entire funds and asset management industry was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Paul McNaughton.

Paul was one of the pioneers of the industry when it was in its infancy in Ireland and continued to make a significant contribution to its growth and development over four decades. Throughout a distinguished professional career, he established and led the Irish operations of Bank of Ireland Securities Services, Morgan Grenfell and Deutsche Bank, where he subsequently rose to lead their funds servicing business globally. He was an entrepreneur, co-founding Bridge Consulting and was also a hugely respected independent non-executive director where he contributed both vast experience and the highest level of professionalism.

In addition, Paul gave generously of his time and talents to the wider industry, serving as the second chair of Irish Funds (then the Irish Association of Fund Administrators and Trustees, IAFAT) in 1993-1994 and always responded positively to support the industry in any way he could. In his professional, charitable and sporting life he was a great believer in putting on the “green jersey” and our industry is a far better and stronger one for his contribution.

We extend our sincere condolence to his wife Jean, sons Conor, Cormac and Cian and his wider family.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
