HAWKSFORD has been recognised as a leading trust company in the prestigious 2012 Private Client Practitioner Top 25 Trust Companies List for the third year in succession.

'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’s place in the market. We are also very pleased to be representing Jersey in such as positive way,’ said Peter Murley, chief executive, Hawksford.

‘It has been another incredible year at Hawksford with the acquisition of Trustcorp Jersey Limited early 2012 and Swiss based boutique law firm, L-S&S GmbH, in August last year. We also opened our Dubai office in June 2011 and now employ 160 people across three jurisdictions. We will be continuing to explore opportunities which will see us strengthen our service offering to clients.’

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’.

Hawksford is an independent wealth structuring company specialising in preserving and enhancing wealth. Clients range from small and large corporates to ultra high net worth individuals.
The Top 25 Trust companies were recognised at an exclusive drinks reception at Bonhams auctioneers, London on Monday 18 June 2012.
