Hawksford International has been recognised as a leading trust company in the prestigious 2011 Private Client Practitioner Top 25 Trust Companies List for the second year in succession.

The announcement of Hawksford International’s inclusion on the esteemed list comes only weeks after the wealth structuring firm was crowned Trust Company of the Year at the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards, at a ceremony in London.

'We are delighted to have been recognised once again by Private Client Practitioner, it is testament to the hard work and continuing dedication of our team who have really gone above and beyond to secure Hawksford International’s place in the market,’ said Peter Murley, CEO, Hawksford International.

‘The business is at an exciting stage of development and inclusion on this list, for the second year in a row, is a fitting step to follow our two recent award successes; being crowned Trust Company of the Year at the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards and Independent Trust Company Team of the Year at the STEP Private Client Awards for 2010/2011. Once again, we are very pleased to be representing Jersey in such as positive way.’

The companies that made the prominent list are regarded as being ‘the biggest and most successful trust companies’ which are ‘well placed to meet the challenges that the future will bring’.

The directors of Hawksford International bought the business from Rathbone Brothers plc in 2008, backed by Dunedin. Hawksford is a leading independent wealth structuring company with the expertise, experience and resource to create and manage structures that withstand the challenges of today's demanding global environment.

The Top 25 Trust companies will be recognised at an exclusive gala dinner at Bonhams auctioneers, London on 7th June 2011.
