Independent trust and corporate services provider Crestbridge has received further recognition for its family office expertise at the Citywealth International Financial Centre (IFC) Awards 2016 this week.

The firm was named ‘Family Office of the Year’ at the Awards ceremony, which was held on Wednesday (20 January) at the Grange City Hotel in London, in so doing beating off competition from four other firms. Heather Tibbo, Director of Family Office Services, was presented with the Award at the event.

The Awards, organised by wealth management specialist publisher and events company Citywealth, were launched five years ago and are designed to recognise the best advisers and managers in the private wealth sector. The winners are selected through a combination of peer and public voting and an independent panel of judges, who in selecting winners, looked for evidence of excellence in innovation, expertise and service levels.

Heather, who was also recently recognised in Citywealth’s ‘IFC Power Women Top 200’ list for the third year running, said:

“Being recognised in such a rapidly evolving, complex and competitive field is a fantastic achievement for Crestbridge and further substantiates our offering in the private wealth sector. As well as highlighting the high standards the family office team here operates and holds itself to, this award also indicates the ambition Crestbridge has to cement itself as a leading player in the global family office space.”

In addition to its family office services, Crestbridge also offers a range of fund, real estate, corporate and capital markets administration services. The firm has an 18 year pedigree in financial services, serving a broad range of blue chip corporate and institutional clients, including FTSE 100 companies, across multi-jurisdictional structures.
