Jack Barlow, Assistant Trust Manager at Highvern, was the recipient of a Future Leaders Award at the Citywealth ceremony held in London last week. Jack was named alongside a number of individuals as emerging talent in the wealth management sector who are not only excelling at work, but also making an important contribution to society.

The Awards are now in their 6th year and champion young professionals in the private wealth industry under forty. Jack beat six other candidates shortlisted to be named the 2021 ‘Trust Officer of the Year’ thanks to his valuable contribution at Highvern and charitable work in his personal time.

Jack has been with Highvern for six years, excelling in his role which saw him recently being promoted to Assistant Trust Manager. As well as being a valued member of the Highvern Sports and Social Committee he is a long-time supporter of the Teenage Cancer Trust Jersey Appeal, selling raffle tickets, acting as a designated driver for events and carrying out other volunteer work for the charity. As an avid sportsman Jack has also participated in a charity cycle from London to Edinburgh raising over £2,000 for the Princes Trust.

Jack said: “I am very honoured to have been singled out for this Award against some great competition. I truly enjoy my role and the chance I have at Highvern to use my skills to make a difference to others, whether that be clients, colleagues or our charitable partners.”

Naomi Rive, Group Director and Head of Private Wealth said: “This is a very deserved win for Jack who is such a great team player and always eager to get involved in the wider objectives of Highvern. We are very fortunate to have people like Jack shaping the future of our business, who see the role not just as a job but as an opportunity to have a wider positive impact on the world.”

Jack was also named by eprivateclient as one of the Top 35 Under 35 Private Client Practitioners this year having undertaken some complex structuring work for a high-net-worth family.
