RAW Capital Partners has appointed a former Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) supervisor as its new Head of Risk and Compliance.

Victoria Smallman had spent the past 13 years in the UK working first for the FCA before then holding a variety of roles for FTSE-listed Capita, rising to Head of Growth, Risk and Compliance.

In her time at the FCA, she received the FCA Infinity Award for her work as an FCA Change Ambassador.

At Capita, Smallman helped the firm grow its business while remaining compliant with national and international financial services regulations, group policies, and procedures.

She oversaw the full lifecycle of Capita’s global second line of defence on bids over £100 million, complex contracts, acquisitions, disposals and international business.

She recently relocated back to Guernsey to take up the role, in which she will lead RAW Capital Partners’ risk and compliance function.

The Guernsey-based investment management firm, through the RAW Mortgage Fund, provides specialist mortgages to foreign nationals and UK expats looking to invest in UK buy-to-let property, as well as mortgages for Channel Islanders.

The Fund has a nine-year track record of providing investors up to 8.61% floating annualised returns.

Smallman said:

“I’m absolutely delighted to join RAW Capital Partners and move to Guernsey with my family.

Combining specialist mortgages and alternative investment opportunities, RAW is an excellent business and is experiencing phenomenal growth – I’m excited to play my part in ensuring this continues.”

Ben Nichols, Interim Managing Director of RAW Capital Partners, added:

“Victoria is a brilliant addition to our team, and she has made an immediate positive impact.

I’m confident that we will continue to benefit from her extensive expertise and experience as we accelerate our growth.”
