Highvern, the award-winning independent fiduciary and fund services provider, has announced the opening of its first office in London this month, allowing it to extend its services and further grow its client base. The new office has been established in response to a growing demand for the company to service clients with UK based private wealth and corporate structuring requirements.

Highvern is based in Jersey but works closely with UK advisers and professional service providers in leading international finance centres, offering a wide suite of fiduciary and fund services to clients with structuring needs. The London office will look to service new and existing Jersey clients along with those seeking an individually tailored and high standard of service in the UK.

Martin Hall, Managing Director of Highvern, said: “Establishing a presence in London, post Brexit, is an endorsement of the UK’s ongoing pivotal status as a centre of advisory excellence for clients engaged in legal structuring. As we begin extending our footprint internationally, a presence in London is a natural early step for Highvern. Our new office will make accessing Highvern’s services easier for UK clients and allow us to extend our brand across two highly regarded finance centres.”

Highvern’s Stefan Le Marquand has recently relocated to the capital to set up the London office, engaging with prospective clients and professional advisors to facilitate the establishment of robust private wealth and corporate structuring.

Highvern was recently recognised as the winner of The Drawdown’s Private Equity Services Awards in the ‘Fund Administration: Under $50bn’ category as well as being named as ‘Trust Company of the Year – Boutique’ in the 2020 Magic Circle Awards and ‘Independent Trust Company of the Year’ at the 2020 IFC Awards. These accolades have helped Highvern to grow its reputation both locally and in the UK for providing higher standards in private wealth, fund and corporate administration.
