Highvern Trustees has expanded its family office proposition with the appointment of a new Head of Family Office Services, Richard Joynt. Richard’s appointment is key to Highvern’s strategic growth in this sector and allows it to continue to meet the increasing demand for high-quality family office services.
Having first qualified and practiced as a Chartered Accountant, Richard’s career moved into the fiduciary services sector some 20 years ago when he set up and for over a decade ran a successful single family office in Jersey. Responding to the changing needs of his client, Richard went on to migrate the family office into a multi-family office environment. He subsequently became an Executive Director of that business and has, since then, continued to work with and provide services to many other family office clients. Few people in industry can claim to have such hands-on experience as Richard when it comes to supporting high-net-worth families with establishing, operating and/or outsourcing their family office requirements.
Naomi Rive, Group Director and Head of Private Wealth at Highvern, commented: “Highvern has over 50 years’ experience of working with some of the world’s most discerning wealthy families and, since becoming independent in 2016, we have seen real growth in the family office sector where our services are now pivotal to a large number of families with complex wealth planning needs.  Richard has a natural aptitude for working with these clients and both his single and multi-family office experience means that he can add real value to the families that he works with.  Working alongside other senior members of our leading private wealth team, we are confident that Richard’s appointment will help Highvern achieve its ambition of becoming the market-leading, independent, private client, corporate and fund administration business of choice.”
