Hawksford International has been shortlisted for Trust Company of the Year in the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards.

Now in their sixth year, the awards have become an established event in the wealth calendar.

Hawksford International was recognised by the judges for its in-depth technical expertise and knowledge, first class client service, market leading products and services and innovative solutions.

'I am delighted that Hawksford International has been shortlisted for this prestigious award. Our nomination is testament to the hard work and continuing dedication our team has made since the management buyout in October 2008 where we have seen the business grow from strength to strength,' said Peter Murley, CEO, Hawksford International.

‘‘Last year we were shortlisted and won the STEP Trust Company of the Year award which was fantastic recognition of our achievements and something we were and still are very proud of. We are therefore very pleased to be representing Jersey again in such as positive way in this year's Citywealth Magic Circle Awards.’

Each year the awards bring together the elite of advisors in the wealth industry as well as being an established event for philanthropists and Citywealth’s ultra high net worth readership.

In 2010 the awards attracted nearly 350 of the industry’s global elite from 120 different organisations including the leading law firms, trust companies, family offices, tax advisors, investment managers and bankers in the wealth sector to recognise the achievements of the industry during the past year.

Winners will be announced at the Citywealth Awards dinner on Thursday 12 May at the Landmark London Hotel.
