I am Emma Godfrey

Manager & Senior Virtual Assistant
Payroll, System Migration, Technical and Analytical Services

I enjoy system migration, data entry, and tasks where complex calculations are required.

I am a seasoned professional with a passion for numbers and a commitment to excellence. Holding an Economics degree achieved in 2005, followed by a Mathematics degree in 2006 from the esteemed University of Malardalen in Sweden, my academic journey laid the foundation for my expertise.

My journey in the finance realm began in 2006 within the Jersey hedge fund industry. Over the past 15 years, I’ve garnered extensive experience in the world of funds, expanding my portfolio to encompass unit trusts and diverse private equity structures, both from an administrative and managerial perspective. My prowess lies in the intricate realm of numbers, specialising in fund investment transactions and valuations. This encompasses a range of responsibilities—daily cash management, strategic handling of investment transactions utilising complex swap instruments, meticulous execution of adjustments to FX hedge arrangements, and precise calculations of performance fees and carried interest.

As a vital member of the Virteffic team, my role extends to orchestrating internal operations with meticulous care. This includes account reconciliation, precise budget calculations, payroll management, and delivering technical and analytical services. I assist with critical functions such as payroll management, drafting contracts and offer letters for new recruits, overseeing the HR system, reconciling bank statements using Quickbooks, handling GST returns, managing insurance renewals, and orchestrating day-to-day administrative processes. I’ve also been instrumental in executing projects, offering nuanced calculations and analytical services, crafting impactful presentations and reports, managing billing and invoicing, reconciling budgets, and creating dynamic Excel schedules embedded with formulas.

My passion for precision and strategic financial navigation is geared towards enhancing your corporate success. I can make the complex calculations work in your favor.

I truly enjoy projects such as data migration, data entry, and anything where complex calculations are required.
