We are delighted to announce that Standard Bank has won silver in the Citywealth International Financial Centre Awards 2024 in the Trust Company of the Year – Jersey category. These Awards celebrate excellence in the private wealth sector, shining a spotlight on companies and individuals who have displayed outstanding commitment to delivering exceptional client service and innovation.
Judged by an international panel of respected practitioners encompassing all private wealth sectors and jurisdictions, winners were deemed to have excelled in four key areas: innovation in services, excellence in client communications, added value, and service fees.
“Receiving this award is a great honour, particularly given the number of high-profile and well-regarded companies operating in this space,” says Michael Giraud, Head of Standard Bank’s International Fiduciary Services Jersey. “We are proud to again be recognised as a leading Jersey trust provider. This is also further industry acknowledgement of our increasingly unique fiduciary model.”
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.
“This accolade is a testament to the focus and commitment of our team, who continue to go above and beyond for our clients,” Michael continues. “Winning this award for the second year running showcases the strength and depth of our fiduciary offering.
