Hawksford has been shortlisted for Independent Trust Company of the Year at the WealthBriefing GCC Region Awards 2015.  

The WealthBriefing GCC Region Awards were launched in 2014 to celebrate integrity, insight and excellence in the wealth management industry. The awards focus on experts (individuals and teams), products and services for wealth managers, clients and institutions of all sizes and types.  

James Howe, director, private client, commented: ‘Hawksford has developed an extensive range of services for our clients in the Middle East, tailored to the intricacies of the region’s culture and regulatory requirements. I am delighted that we have been shortlisted for this prestigious award as it recognises our international ambitions and highlights the strength of the relationships we have with our clients and intermediaries in the region.’  

Each year the WealthBriefing GCC Awards bring together the elite of advisers in the wealth industry. The judging process will involve specially convened panels, drawn from both private banks and trusted advisers, and supported by relevant third-party organisations.  

The ceremony of the WealthBriefing GCC Awards will take place on 10 November 2015 in Dubai.  

Hawksford’s dedicated Middle East team is focussed on fostering strong relationships with clients and intermediaries in the region. In 2006, Hawksford structured and helped launch Qatar’s first ever Sukuk, regulated by the Qatar Financial Centre.
