JTC gains recognition in major private wealth publications

Published 14 Sep 2016

The strength of JTC’s global private client services has been reinforced through a number of recent endorsements in major publications serving the international private wealth management community.

The latest accolade, following a hugely successful few months for JTC in terms of industry recognition, was awarded this week to JTC’s Private Client Services Manager, Karen Burton, who is named in the prestigious eprivateclient Top 35 Under 35 list for 2016.

International industry commentator Chambers and Partners this year produced their first ever High Net Worth (HNW) Guide aimed at the international private wealth market, for use by family offices and professional advisers. In the 2016 HNW Guide, JTC is ranked as a ‘recommended adviser’ in the Jersey trust company section, and is described as an ‘international powerhouse’ that has ‘expanded across the world in a big way’.

In a double shortlisting by wealth management publishing house Citywealth, JTC is a finalist in the ‘Trust Company of the Year - Jersey’ category at the International Financial Centre Awards 2017, and Siobhan O’Sullivan, Associate Director, Group Business Development & Marketing at JTC, is a finalist in the ‘Woman of the Year: Business Services’ category at the Powerwomen Awards 2017. Winners of the awards are due to be announced at ceremonies in London in January and February 2017 respectively.

In addition to this, Michelle Le Herissier, Private Client Services Director, is recognised as a leader in the private wealth field, having been named in the Citywealth Powerwomen Leaders List 2016. A client testimonial supporting this achievement states: ‘I have been impressed by the way she manages her role and at the same time as acting as a very successful ambassador for the fiduciary business of JTC Group around the world. She manages both with aplomb and gravitas’. Michelle has over 20 years’ industry experience and joined JTC in 2015 to head up the company’s BVI office.

Citywealth recently announced their Future Leaders 100 List for 2016. This annual list includes Darren English, Director, and Paulina Harvey, Senior Manager, from JTC’s Private Client Services team.

This succession of acknowledgements follows another prestigious award earlier in the year when JTC won the ‘Editor’s Choice’ award in the Citywealth Brand Management and Reputation Awards 2016.

Nigel Le Quesne, Group CEO and Chairman, JTC, said: ‘JTC is focused on leading the way across both its private and institutional client services divisions. These latest endorsements highlight how well perceived JTC is in the private wealth management community and reflect how committed we are to empowering and nurturing our staff, who are vital assets to the business.’
