Trust Corporation of the Channel Islands has been nominated for the highly-regarded Society of Trust and Estate Practitioner (STEP) Private Client Awards in the category for independent trust companies.
This is the first year that the category for independents has been introduced and Trust Corporation is one of three companies with a Channel Islands presence on the short list of five.
With a number of categories open to nominees across the global industry, the awards have become a benchmark of the best companies in the private client practitioner world.
Trust Corporation of the Channel Islands recently celebrated its 10th anniversary as an independent trust company based in Guernsey.
Highlights of the past year have included the appointment of Amit Taylor as Group Managing Director, freeing up the company’s founding practitioners to concentrate on their specialist practice areas, as well as the decision to sell the fund services arm Fund Corporation to increase the firm’s focus on private client activity.
Michael Betley, group chairman, said: “We are extremely pleased to have been shortlisted for the STEP Awards, especially in a new category that specifically showcases the strengths of our business as an independent trust company.
“It is very encouraging to see independent trust companies given a specific category for the first time. We were able to prove with confidence the benefits of our independent status and it is fantastic to see that this has been recognised, placing us among the best private client practitioners in the world.”
The Awards will be judged by a panel of experts and presented at a gala diner in London in September.
