Projected growth across its corporate, real estate, funds, capital markets and family office business areas is prompting Crestbridge to anticipate further increases in the size of its offices in Jersey and Luxembourg.
Speaking at a reception held at the Jersey Museum to celebrate the official launch of Crestbridge’s new brand, attended by leading figures from Jersey’s legal and financial sectors, Graeme McArthur, CEO of Crestbridge, said that he expected the Jersey headquartered Crestbridge Group’s number of employees to surpass the 100 milestone in the coming few months:
“This has been a big year for us. Not only have we rebranded, but we have also launched new service lines, and seen our teams in both Jersey and Luxembourg expanding – a trend that we expect to continue based on projected business flows. I would anticipate that our total staff numbers will have grown to over 100 early in the New Year. Much of this expansion has taken place in Jersey which is a key component of our business and I am delighted with the growth we have seen here.”
“We are evolving as a firm, looking to grow in a strategic and focused way into new sectors, markets and jurisdictions. With that in mind, I am delighted that so many of our clients and contacts joined us to celebrate the latest stage in our journey and mark our new identity, which I believe sets us apart from anyone else in the market. Our success is very much aligned with that of our clients, and I look forward to continuing to work and grow with them in the coming years.”
Also at the reception, a draw was held for a specially commissioned piece of art by prominent contemporary British artist Jeremy Houghton, current Artist in Residence at Highgrove. He presented the winner, reception attendee David Stearn, with the unique work.
Crestbridge had sponsored Jeremy’s October exhibition – his first in Jersey – at Liberty Wharf, with a number of his collection being on preview at the reception. Jeremy was also official BT Artist for the London 2012 Olympic Games and is Official Artist for the Aston Martin Centenary Tour of Europe this year.
With a 15 year pedigree in financial services Crestbridge administers over US$50 billion of assets across multi-jurisdictional structures and supports a broad range of blue chip corporate clients, including FTSE 100 companies, major institutions, banks, pension funds, private equity and venture capital firms.
