Goal Group, the global fintech leader in withholding tax reclamation and securities class action recovery services, has announced that accomplished business leader and withholding tax specialist Dawn McGuire has joined the company as Managing Director, Americas.
Her appointment is the latest in a series of new hires as Goal scales up its US business in response to strong market demand for its next-generation technology and world-leading expertise in cross-border tax recovery and shareholder class actions participation. Dawn will spearhead the company’s ambitious growth by fully capitalising on the roll-out of its innovative, subscription-based cloud delivery model, and guide the New York-based team to further raise the bar in operations, client service and research excellence.
Dawn has a proven track record building, leading and growing three global information reporting and withholding tax practices, most recently at Ernst & Young LLP and PwC where she managed the largest client engagement in the practice’s history. As a frequent national speaker, she is recognised as a prominent thought-leader in the industry.
Stephen Everard, CEO, Goal Group, said: “With her deep knowledge of tax, legal and operational matters, Dawn is the perfect choice to take our world-leading tax reclaims and securities class actions business to its exciting next stage of growth."
“We are being approached by institutions across the investment community who wish to leverage our in-house knowledge base and powerful, market-proven technology applications to bring new levels of efficiency, transparency and cost-effectiveness to their established processes. Dawn is an exceptional business leader and I’m confident that she will build strong relationships with new and existing clients, and help us to maximise new market opportunities presented by our compelling suite of highly secure, cost-effective cloud-based services.”
Commenting on her appointment, Dawn McGuire said: “It’s clear that Goal is going from strength to strength and I am excited at the prospect of working with clients and partners to improve results for investors while reducing costs, and steering the team to reach its full potential."
“As the focus on corporate governance intensifies globally, investors are more motivated to seek redress from an ethical as well as financial perspective. If investment intermediaries do not empower their clients to make their voices heard and submit every eligible claim, they are failing to maximise returns and neglecting a vital fiduciary duty."
“With the right external support, fund managers and custodians can transform reclaims and recoveries from a burdensome duty into a lucrative competitive differentiator.”
Goal Group offers an insourced (licensed), outsourced and now a subscription-based delivery model to meet the full range of client requirements. The company is processing its highest ever volumes of claim filings, monitoring in excess of £8 trillion (USD 11 trillion) in client assets worldwide and recording record revenues. Its client base includes five of the top ten global custodians, six of the top ten global fund managers and all four U.S. depositary banks.
