Estera has been shortlisted three times in Citywealth’s International Financial Centre Awards 2017, and CEO Farah Ballands has been nominated for ‘Inspirational Woman of the Year’ in the magazine’s Powerwomen awards 2017.  

The fiduciary and administration services provider has been shortlisted in the ‘Trust Company of the Year’ categories for all three Crown dependencies – Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Man.  

“To be shortlisted for Trust Company of the Year in three separate jurisdictions demonstrates the strength and depth we are able to offer our clients. It also recognises the hard work and commitment of our team to delivering quality service to our clients,” said Farah Ballands, CEO of Estera.  

The Citywealth IFC awards, which are now in their sixth year, were established to highlight excellence in the private wealth sector across the major international finance centres. A panel of highly respected practitioners with experience of working with international advisers will be looking for evidence of achievement, innovation, expertise and service.  

The Powerwomen Awards recognise individuals and companies who maximise the potential of women in wealth. ‘It’s always an honour to be nominated in an individual capacity for a Citywealth award. Launching the new brand following the MBO has made 2016 a particularly exciting and challenging year,’ added Mrs Ballands.  

The winners will be announced at ceremonies in London in early 2017.
