We are thrilled to announce that Standard Bank’s International Fiduciary Services team has been honoured with a first-place winner in the Trust Company of the Year category at the 2024 Citywealth Magic Circle Awards.

The awards, which set the standard globally for excellence in wealth management, recognise the achievements of leading trust companies, family offices, law firms, tax advisers and investment managers in the private wealth industry.

“Winning the award for Trust Company of the Year is a tremendous achievement, particularly in light of the strong competition we faced in this category,” says Michael Giraud, Head of Fiduciary Services in Jersey. “This accolade is a further endorsement of our unique offering, and we thank everyone who took the time to vote for us.”

As a leading trust company providing private client, corporate, and family office services, Standard Bank has been establishing and administering complex and bespoke fiduciary structures for over 100 years. With a robust and agile offering, it combines the strength and depth of Africa’s largest bank by assets with the flexibility of a boutique fiduciary provider.

With a strong presence on the African continent, the group offers domestic trust services from South Africa, Nigeria, and Namibia, and international fiduciary services from Jersey and Mauritius. The international trust team has extensive experience serving families with a global geographic footprint holding a variety of assets across the world, making them ideally suited to work with African connected families worldwide.
