Estera, a leading, global fiduciary provider, wins gold for ‘Best Employer – Career Progression’ in Citywealth’s Future Leaders Awards. This award recognises excellence across the board as well as significant growth in Estera’s business and investment in people, premises, and systems.

Group Chief Executive Officer at Estera, Farah Ballands commented “With more than 550 professionals working in 11 jurisdictions across multiple service lines in a growing, fast-paced business, it could be easy to lose sight of the individual. But our success has been built on the efforts of every one of those people – and we are committed to their future development, helping them achieve their goals in tandem with our own.”

Farah continues, “We are proud to have built a culture where learning and development is encouraged, hard work is rewarded, and career ambitions are achieved. We actively support the ongoing training and professional development of all our people.”
