Crestbridge crowned Best Independent Trust/Fiduciary Company at the Wealthbriefing European awards 2019

Crestbridge, a leading global administration, trust, management & corporate governance solutions business, was last night given a prestigious editor’s award at the WealthBriefing European Awards 2019.  The triumph is yet another milestone in the company’s drive to be recognised as one of the pre-eminent players in the competitive trust and fiduciary space.

Showcasing ‘best of breed’ providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities, the awards were designed to recognise companies, teams and individuals which the prestigious panel of judges deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2018’. Emma Crosby from SKY News presented the awards during a glitzy gala black-tie dinner, at the Guildhall in the City of London.

Commenting on the award win, Heather Tibbo, Director and Group Head of Family Office Services at Crestbridge, said: "Our Family Office Services business continues to go from strength-to-strength, and this award from Wealthbriefing is another fantastic achievement for our exceptional, multi-jurisdictional team. We are seeing sustained growth across our family office business, with clients continuing to demand specialist expertise, knowledge and capabilities to support their succession planning and wealth management strategies. This latest recognition is a reflection of our ability to meet this demand.”

ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefing, Stephen Harris, was first to extend his congratulations to all the winners.  He said: “The firms who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations.  These awards were judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered focusing on the client experience, not quantitative performance metrics.  That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature.  These awards recognise the very best operators in the private client industry, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process - such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management.  I am optimistic that these annual awards will become one of the brightest highlights in the wealth management calendar.”

Paul Windsor, Managing Director, London, collected the award for ‘Independent Trust Company’ of the year at the awards ceremony held at the Guildhall, last night.
