Independent corporate, fund and private client services provider JTC Group has marked its 27th consecutive year of growth with the launch of a refreshed global brand, unveiled to staff, clients and intermediary partners.
The launch of JTC’s new look comes after another successful year, which saw the firm continue its strategic expansion plan, growing its Assets Under Administration (AUA) to more than £25bn across its three core divisions, expanding its global footprint to have a presence in 17 jurisdictions, growing its volume of clients to over 2,000, and increasing its global staff headcount to over 300.
JTC highlights from 2014 include acquiring a book of private client business from Herald Trust Company, opening an office in New York, expanding its service offering in the Cayman Islands, and making a significant financial investment in the Kensington Trust Group.
The firm also made a number of key strategic appointments, including Paul Mower as Director of the New York office, Philip Burgin to Head up JTC’s London office, Jonathan Kirby as Managing Director of the Swiss office and Sebastien Hayoz as Director of Private Client Services in Switzerland, and Nadine Cachia as Managing Director of the Malta office.
In developing the new brand, JTC has sought to build on its heritage of quality and performance to deliver a vibrant, modern and competitive feel. The new brand strapline, ‘Your Future Is Our Future’, reflects its commitment to the success of its clients and partners, and that the majority of the business is owned by its staff through its industry leading ‘Shared Ownership’ and ‘Equity for All’ schemes. To facilitate the new brand, which includes a completely new website and the production of specialist video and graphics, the firm enlisted the expertise of a number of external agencies based in both the UK and its headquarter jurisdiction of Jersey.
Nigel Le Quesne, CEO and Chairman of JTC Group, said:
“In 2014 JTC delivered another successful year as a result of our clear strategy and the hard work of our 300-plus people and our valued partners. The continued expansion of the business through organic growth, building alliances and making carefully considered acquisitions means that we are now able to offer the highest levels of service across a global network that spans 17 locations and administers more than £25 billion of assets. I am delighted that we are able to start 2015 with the launch of an exciting new brand that clearly sets out our commitment to excellence and offering clients the highest possible standards of service.”
David Vieira, Group Head of Business Development & Marketing, JTC Group, added:
“As well as now being a global business, JTC is also immensely proud of its roots and heritage. As our brand has evolved over the years, it has always reflected both our past success and our future aspirations and it’s fitting that for this latest iteration, we have worked with both internationally recognised agencies and specialist companies in Jersey. The new JTC brand will provide a robust communication platform to support our ambitious plans for 2015 and beyond.”
