Published 9 Sep 2014

Philip Burgin heads up JTC's London office.

As part of a strategic plan to strengthen JTC’s presence in London and provide greater face to face contact at a senior level with existing and new advisors and intermediaries, Philip Burgin, Group Head of Client Services, will be based in our Mayfair office with effect from the 15th September.

With over 19 years JTC experience across all three divisions; private client, corporate and funds, he is responsible for overseeing the on-going development of our client services as well as the organic growth of the business.   In addition, Philip’s role is focussed on raising the Group’s profile as well as reinforcing existing - and forging new - relationships with our intermediary network.

Commenting on his new responsibilities, Philip said:

“London, of course, has long been used as a premier gateway to all international financial markets and continues to provide an extremely useful book of both established and potential contacts not already known to JTC.  I’ll be looking to meet with a targeted list of people and firms in order to further understand their clients’ commercial and technical requirements from a service provider such as JTC and how we can work collectively to meet and surpass clients’ expectations and facilitate ways for us to work together. “

Philip continued:

“I am very much looking forward to heading up the Group’s physical presence in what is one of the top four global financial centres. Basing myself in London after nearly 20 years, and having a strong association with the capital as a Freeman of the City of London, it will be refreshing being back in a city that provides an excellent stepping off point for existing and new target markets complimented by all our offices including those in the three other leading global financial centres of New York, Hong Kong and Singapore.”

Philip holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Management Studies, is a member of the Chartered Management Institute, The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners as well as being a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators and the Royal Society of Arts.

He also has a specific wealth of knowledge of the real estate market and has acted as a director to a number of residential and commercial property companies and funds.
