Chris Mourant, Associate Director of Private Client Services at Fairway, has been recognised by Citywealth in the NextGen Top 40 Under 40 IFC 2023, a top-rated list of rising stars in the wealth management industry.

The prestigious NextGen Top 40 Under 40 IFC 2023 list is derived from recommendations by clients and colleagues and backed by independent research carried out by Citywealth. Chris’ inclusion in the list, alongside the top wealth management and private client experts from throughout the UK, is a reflection of his hard work and dedication to his role.

Chris’ current role has evolved over the last 12 months. Having worked on the client administration side of the business for 10 years, he now focuses on business development, onboarding of new business opportunities, and internal strategy, whilst still having a keen focus on Fairway’s Middle East operation. Chris works closely with high net worth families based in the GCC to create structures that form part of a holistic approach to succession planning. Most structures tend to be of high value and include varying asset classes with touchpoints in multiple jurisdictions. This is a particularly complex area, with cross border estates and reporting requirements.

Mark Andrews, Fairway’s Managing Director, Private Client, said: “Chris is an integral part of the team, his technical expertise and extensive experience have significantly contributed to the success of our Private Client team and have played a pivotal role in the broader expansion of the business. Chris consistently makes outstanding contributions to new business, developing innovative onboarding processes to provide superior client service. He is an exceptional talent, who is incredibly well respected by clients and the Fairway team, making his inclusion on this list truly well-deserved.”
