Hannah Roynon-Jones has been promoted to the role of Associate Director at Alex Picot Trust Company, bolstering the leadership team of this independent Jersey trust company.

Previously holding the position of Tax Manager, in her new role as Associate Director, Miss Roynon-Jones will focus on building her own portfolio of private clients while working alongside the three Directors to move Alex Picot Trust Company forward.

She will continue to oversee the Company’s Jersey tax compliance and its FATCA/CRS compliance and reporting, while managing the tax services team she helped to establish.

Director, Andrew Le Cheminant, said: “As a tax consultant and then tax manager, Hannah has helped us to shape and grow our tax services offering and successfully established a solid client base within this service line.  Her commitment to Alex Picot Trust Company is clear and her promotion to Associate Director is well deserved recognition.  My fellow Directors and I congratulate Hannah on her promotion and wish her all the best in her new role.

“Since our separation from Alex Picot Chartered Accountants in 2016, we have been focussed on putting in place a team that can help us to move forward whilst remaining as an independent Jersey trust company; Hannah’s promotion is central to this objective and is the first of a number of senior appointments we will be announcing in the coming months.”

Miss Roynon-Jones joined Alex Picot Trust from Ernst & Young in 2016. She is a qualified Chartered Accountant and an Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland Tax Professional (ITP).  She also holds the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) Advanced Certificate in UK Tax for International Clients.

In 2017, she achieved the highest mark of any Jersey student in The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland final case study exam. She is experienced in UK tax; including ATED (Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings); non-resident Capital Gains Tax; the non-resident landlord scheme; and UK domiciliary tax regulation.

Hannah regularly represents Alex Picot Trust Company at international events organised by Kreston International, a network of over 200 firms across 125 countries. In addition to sharing knowledge with Kreston colleagues at these events, Miss Roynon-Jones also provides regular Jersey and international tax updates for peers within the Jersey investment and legal fields.
