“First and foremost, we were looking for an IT partner that could deliver global support and work with us to ensure our systems could support our ambitious growth plans,” said Patrick Meehan, group finance director at Sheffield Haworth. “However, it was also crucial that we aligned ourselves with a provider that could act as a true IT partner, one that offers long term strategic advice.”

“Throughout the sales process, Nasstar demonstrated capability within our sector, understanding of our business and systems, and reassured me that they would be on hand to help inform the technical direction of the business,” Mr. Meehan said.

“We’re delighted to support such a prestigious and ambitious firm as Sheffield Haworth and are looking forward to working with them to achieve their business objectives,” said Andy Lewis, Nasstar’s business development manager. “Sheffield Haworth understands the importance of having a robust, efficient IT platform in place on which to drive the business forward and ensure maximum value is gained from their applications. We look forward to a long and successful relationship together.”

Sheffield Haworth began the year with the addition of Deborah Way to its New York office as a managing director within the firm’s global markets team. Ms. Way brings to the firm a wealth of experience in fixed income sales across the New York and Asia markets, having spent over 21 years in industry. She will be partnering closely with Sarah Harte who has been growing the equities business across the U.S. This new partnership will enable the practice to offer clients a range of solutions across fixed income and equities.
