BIRKIRKARA, Malta, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The offices, which are due to start opening in the next month, will bring the total number of deVere offices in Western Europe to seventeen.

deVere's latest operation will be overseen by industry expert, Richard Bayle. Bayle joined the investment and insurance profession in 1971 and worked in senior management positions for large companies such as Prudential and Siddalls. Before joining deVere, Bayle served as a board member at IFG Financial Services.

Mike Coady, deVere Group's Regional Manager for Western Europe, said, "We are pleased to provide a presence in France and believe that this will quickly become a key market for us in light of the demand we've received for our services in the region to date. Richard Bayle is a fantastic addition to the company and I am confident that his experience and profile position him as the ideal candidate to take on this new challenge."

Richard Bayle commented, "I look forward to this new experience. This is a great opportunity to be part of a truly global financial services company, advise on some of the best products in the marketplace and work alongside qualified industry experts."
