Faces of Pitcairn

Family Office Solutions Specialist
January 2021

This month Pitcairn was pleased to launch the next evolution of our reporting and custody platform called PRISM™. PRISM (Pitcairn Reporting and Information Security Management) represents the new standard in integrated family office support and its design provides increased flexibility, mobility, and security. 

Behind the scenes, Darryl Chisom, Family Office Solutions Specialist, has been working diligently supporting Pitcairn’s technology and operations teams to integrate PRISM across all aspects of clients’ portfolio reporting, custody, and operational support. We recently sat down with Darryl to chat about his involvement on the PRISM project and more.

Tell us a little bit about your journey at Pitcairn and how it has evolved.
Since joining Pitcairn in June 2017, I’ve seen my role go from more task-based work to process management to the present with what has become more project-oriented work similar to my involvement with PRISM. In support of the project-oriented work, I’ve recently completed coursework and attained a project management certification. My overall experience at Pitcairn thus far has been extremely rewarding. I’d say as Pitcairn has evolved, so too has my role.

What type of projects do you enjoy working on the most?
I really enjoy being able to utilize technology to program business solutions that increase employee effectiveness and improve processes. I find joy working on projects where I can write code, problem solve and increase efficiencies.

2021 is a big year for Pitcairn with the launch of PRISM. Can you share with us your involvement with PRISM?
To me, PRISM means consolidation and refinement. My initial involvement has included the mass creation of our client agreements. Also, I will be involved in moving our Client and Adviser Portals from our current system to the future system. The team is eager to share the updated interface, enhanced viewing features, and most importantly, the additional layer of data security.

What are you looking forward to in 2021?
I’m looking forward to having a “normal” active summer for the first time since 2019. I have two new goals for the new year. I want to improve my flexibility. I believe tension release is good body maintenance. I also want to work on being more present in the moment. I tend to get caught up in what’s next instead of appreciating what’s now.
