Two of RBC Wealth Management’s Jersey-based trust professionals have been named on Private Client Practitioner’s Top 35 under 35 List for 2012. Paul Tomlinson, Private Client Associate Director, and Mark Fleming, Private Client Senior Manager, feature among the 35 men and 35 women identified as young and upcoming stars within the private client advisory profession. The list includes lawyers, accountants, trustees and other professional intermediaries. This is the third year in a row that Mr Tomlinson has been named on the list. Nominations were judged against such criteria as the individuals’ career achievements, their career progression relevant to their age, and the number of high-quality nominations they received. Those that were felt to be the strongest entrants and the likeliest to be at the forefront of private client work in the future made it onto the final Top 35 under 35 List. Steve Romeril, Head of Trust in the British Isles commented: “Paul and Mark have both been with RBC Wealth Management for a number of years now and it’s been a pleasure to see them both mature in their roles and establish themselves as two of the most talented young professionals in their field. Their commitment and dedication to their clients has been first rate and I’m sure I can speak for many of them in congratulating Paul and Mark on this excellent achievement.” – end – For more information, please contact: Paul French, Communications, RBC Wealth Management, +44 (0)20 7002 2013 Timi Oni, Communications, RBC Wealth Management +44 (0)207 653 4516 About RBC Wealth Management RBC Wealth Management is one of the world’s top 10 largest wealth managers.
