Kalo is delighted to announce the promotion of Anna Silver from our BVI office to Director. Anna has been with the Kalo team as a Senior Manager in the BVI office since April 2017 and has more than 15 years' insolvency experience working with stakeholders of distressed entities across a wide range of industries.

Anna has taken a leading role and played a crucial part on some of the most significant BVI insolvency matters in recent years and her promotion is testament to her exemplary track-record and the high regard in which she is held by colleagues, clients and fellow professionals. 

Anna’s career highlights include leading a team on a multi-jurisdictional assignment involving complex enforcement procedures across the British Virgin Islands, Guernsey, UK, Isle of Man and Germany, with approximately 100 property assets to realise worth over £150 million. Most recently, Anna also played a leading role in the team that announced the successful settlement with Madoff trustee, Irving Picard, in relation to the Kingate Funds. The settlement makes hundreds of millions of dollars available to directly compensate investors in the Kingate Funds for their losses.

Anna is a qualified Chartered Accountant, a UK qualified insolvency practitioner and BVI Insolvency licence holder. Anna also holds a postgraduate diploma in international insolvency law.

Anna commented on her appointment: “Being part of the Kalo team has been a privilege over the past two years and I am delighted to continue to develop my career with the firm. Kalo is a business built on a strong ethics; and I am a firm believer in this approach and the positive outcomes it delivers for clients and stakeholders. I look forward to continuing to work with the talented team at Kalo, to ensure that in some of the most challenging and complex situations, we deliver the best possible results for our clients.”

Paul Pretlove, Managing Director of Kalo’s BVI office, added: “Anna has played an invaluable role in the business over recent years, particularly in helping us rebuild after the devastation caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria from physical presence on the ground at the outset to supporting and developing new team members, enhancing our marketing activities, developing our contacts base and all whilst establishing herself as a highly regarded appointment taking insolvency practitioner on island. This has all helped us to reestablish ourselves as a market leader and we are delighted to recognise this with her promotion to Director. At Kalo our people are our greatest asset and our senior team has a reputation for acting ethically, sensibly and fairly in the most difficult of circumstances. The addition of Anna as a director in the BVI further strengthens our offering and we look forward to continuing to work with her over the coming months and years as we continue to develop and grow our business.”
