JTC was last night (25 September) crowned ‘Trust Company of the Year (large firm)’ at the STEP Private Client Awards 2019 ceremony, held at London’s Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel.
Perceived as the most prestigious awards initiative in the private client industry, designed to highlight excellence among private client lawyers, accountants, bankers, trust managers and financial advisors, recognition in the STEP Private Client Awards clearly exemplifies a continued commitment to quality client service and innovation.
This accolade reinforces another strong year for JTC, which announced a 32% growth in revenue in the first six months of the year in its interim results earlier this month, with its private client services division reporting a solid performance. JTC’s proprietary private office technology Edge was also recently recognised at the Wealthmanagement.com Awards, where it picked up the award for ‘Family Offices: Client Initiative’, whilst JTC also continues to be recognised as a Tier I trust company in ePrivateClient’s Top Trust company rankings.
Iain Johns, JTC’s Group Head of Private Wealth Services, commented:
“As the most sought-after award in our market space, this is a fantastic achievement for the team in what has been another strong year for JTC. To win it in the face of such competition tells you everything you need to know about JTC – we innovate, we differentiate, we have a special culture but, above all, the foundation of what we do is client service excellence. This has been the bedrock of our many successes in recent years and our clients can be assured that this is where our sights will remain firmly fixed.”
