2017 eprivateclient Top Trust Company Highvern Trustees has made two senior promotions within its private client trust business in Jersey.
Ross Collins has been appointed as associate director within Highvern’s newly formed family office services team. He has over 16 years experience within the trust industry in Jersey and is a qualified chartered secretary with the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators.
In recent years Mr Collins has worked closely with a number of Highvern’s ultra high net worth Middle Eastern families and has increasingly become a key co-ordinator for them and their third party advisers and agents.
At the same time Magdelena Gruell has been promoted to the role of associate director in the Middle East and Central Europe team at Highvern. She has worked with Highvern for the past eight years and is a qualified trust and estates practitioner (TEP). During her time at Highvern, Ms Gruell has gained exposure to a wide range of clients including UK resident clients, Middle Eastern and Central European clients and has experience of working with complex structures holding a diverse range of assets.
Martin Hall, managing director, commented: “Ross and Magda’s promotions to associate director are a recognition of the commitment and professionalism that they have shown both to Highvern Trustees and to its clients over several years. At Highvern we believe that continuity of service is key and we are delighted to be able to nurture and recognise the talent within the business. Both Ross and Magda have great careers ahead of them and crucially they are also great mentors to our trust managers and administrators.”
Highvern Trustees provides specialist trust and company administration, family office, real estate and corporate services to its international client base.
Following a management buy-out of the company, Coutts & Co Trustees (Jersey) re-launched itself under a new boutique private client brand, Highvern in December 2016. The firm provides specialist trust and company administration, family office, real estate and corporate services to its international client base, and is regulated by the Jersey Financial Services Commission.
