Cross-border advisory firm Quantuma has strengthened its Caribbean leadership team through the appointment of industry veteran Stephen Briscoe. 

Stephen joins Quantuma as a managing director and will form part of its international leadership team. He will split his time between the firm’s Cayman and British Virgin Island offices, where he is well-recognised and regarded amongst the professional services communities. 

Stephen is a restructuring professional with extensive offshore and cross-border experience. Over the course of his career, he has held leadership roles in major US advisory firms, as well as in boutique advisory firms in Hong Kong where he spent almost 20 years, and latterly in the Cayman Islands. 

Stephen’s appointment follows the acquisition of the K3 Capital Group Limited, Quantuma’s parent company, by an affiliate of Sun European Partners, LLP in 2023, as the group continues to execute its aggressive global growth strategy. 

Stephen has undertaken a vast number of assignments, including acting as liquidator of several hundred insolvent Hong Kong companies in a variety of industry sectors, including construction, property, manufacturing, import and export and various service industries. Other recent assignments include acting as the court appointed receiver of a private equity entity with operations in Asia, Europe and the USA and acting as independent director of an oil derivatives trading company; managing a dispute between the shareholders and the litigation arising as a result of the dispute. 

Commenting on his appointment, Stephen Briscoe said: 

“I am delighted to be returning to the Caribbean to continue to develop the firm’s Caribbean presence and develop its range of capabilities, in addition to contributing to the firm’s global growth ambitions. 

I am pleased to be working alongside a talented and senior team of restructuring, investigations and asset tracing and recovery professionals in both Cayman and BVI and am looking forward to working with colleagues notably in the Far East as we continue to develop our Caribbean offering." 

Carl Jackson, Quantuma chairman said:

“I am delighted to welcome Stephen to the firm. The breadth and depth of his experience in complex cross-border matters is extensive, and I am looking forward to working alongside Stephen as he develops our offshore reach.”
