Sovereign Trust (Channel Islands) Limited, part of the worldwide financial services organisation Sovereign Group, announces the appointment of Paul Woodland as Business Development Manager.
Mr Woodland’s role is to promote the fiduciary services of Sovereign Trust’s office here in Guernsey, plus those of the other 25 jurisdictions in which the group operates. He is also responsible for building relationships with professional introducers across the Channel Islands, the UK, and elsewhere in the world.
‘This is an exciting role for me as we are able to offer a solution to most customers and intermediaries’ needs due to the depth of the group,’ said Mr Woodland.
‘I have been meeting with professional introducers in various locations to explore ways of working together. Some of these are other fiduciary businesses which might not have the appetite or solution for some of the referrals they receive,’ he continued.
Mr Woodland has worked in the financial services sector for 25 years, mainly in a business development role. He previously spent three years as Head of Local Markets for Barclays Wealth here in Guernsey, and prior to that worked as an Area Manager at RBS Private Banking with responsibility for relationship development managers.
Prior to this, Mr Woodland worked as a financial adviser and sales manager for several insurance companies, and holds financial planning qualifications.
‘Sovereign Group was formed over 25 years ago, and our resultant expertise and service in the sectors of estate planning, corporate services and pensions means we are ideally placed to assist clients in these areas.’
‘I am particularly relishing promoting the top class services that we here in Guernsey provide to the rest of the Sovereign Group across the world,’ Mr Woodland concluded.
