Collas Crill Trust named Independent Trust Company of the Year at the WealthBriefing European Awards 2014
Collas Crill Trust was crowned Independent Trust Company of the Year at the WealthBriefing European Awards 2014 in London last night.
Announcing it as the winner of this fiercely-contested category, the judges remarked on Collas Crill Trust’s client focus, saying the firm had demonstrated a high quality and very traditional personalised service that maintained client touch with regulatory changes and requirements.
Collas Crill Trusts’ managing director, Matt Litten said: “This prestigious award is a huge achievement and a great team effort for Collas Crill Trust. We particularly value being recognised by our industry peers as a leading independent law-firm owned trustee in the private wealth management space.
“We are also delighted to be recognised as a Guernsey-based trustee, again showcasing the island as a premier wealth management jurisdiction”.
The BBC’s Sophie Raworth presented the awards during a glitzy gala black-tie dinner at the stunning Guildhall in the City of London. Showcasing ‘best of breed’ providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities, the awards recognise companies, teams and individuals who the judges deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2013’.
ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefing, Stephen Harris, said: “These awards were judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered focusing on the client experience, not quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. These awards recognise the very best operators in the private client industry, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process – such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management.”
