Jersey Trust Company (JTC) has been shortlisted for the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) Private Client Awards as Independent Trust Company of the Year.

The nomination follows JTC’s success at the Jersey Enterprise Awards in March, where the firm won the Play.com Large Business of the Year Award.

Competition for this year’s STEP Awards has been particularly strong with more entries being submitted than ever before. This has left the judges with a difficult task and ensured that only the very best entries have been put forward to the shortlist.

Being nominated for a second major award in one year has delighted Nigel Le Quesne, Group Managing Director of Jersey Trust Company.

“We entered the STEP Private Client Awards because we are proud of the quality of service that we offer and believe that our true independence and client-centred ethos give us competitive advantage. It is absolutely wonderful to be shortlisted for another prestigious award and I’d like to congratulate every member of the team and thank them for their hard work.”

The award winners will be announced by comedian Rory Bremner at a ceremony held on 19th October at the Hilton Park Lane Hotel, London.
