Standard Bank recognised as a top trust company
Standard Bank’s international fiduciary services division has been featured as one of the 2022 eprivateclient Top Trust Companies – a recognised ranking of the leading trust and fiduciary companies supporting both private clients and family offices worldwide.
The rankings list both independent and non-independent firms and are based on reputation, quality of service, how the firm has fared in the last 12 months as well as M&A activity. Recognition on the list is a testament to Standard Bank’s longevity and standing in the industry.
Michael Giraud, Head of Standard Bank Offshore Trust Company Jersey Limited said: "This is the first time we have submitted data to the rankings and so I am delighted that we have made the cut. These rankings are great recognition for the team who have expertly and quietly gone about their business for so long. As a business we are thrilled to have been recognised.
“This listing builds on earlier recognition received during the year and we feel it is a strong endorsement of our increasingly unique offering in the market. There are very few trust companies that operate like an independent trust company yet have the good fortune to have a shareholder with the strength and depth of an organisation such as Standard Bank.”
Standard Bank has also recently been shortlisted for Citywealth’s Trust Company of the Year – Channel Islands in their IFC awards, with Michael Giraud being shortlisted as Trustee of the Year – Channel Islands & Isle of Man. Earlier this year the team was named Highly Commended in the Annual WealthBriefing European Awards 2022. Numerous other team members have been awarded or shortlisted for industry awards.
Standard Bank has been providing fiduciary services to African connected and UK resident families for over 100 years. Providing international fiduciary services from Jersey and Mauritius, Standard Bank specialises in providing bespoke estate and succession planning structures to high net worth and ultra-high net worth families.
