Crestbridge family office director named in private client ‘power list’
Compiled by wealth management publication Citywealth, the ‘IFC Power Women 100’ list was published this month and seeks to recognise the most high profile and influential women working in a range of international finance centres. Those named in the list come from a range of backgrounds stretching from the public sector, regulatory and jurisdictional promotional bodies to private client, investment, legal, trust and family office professionals.
A Director within Crestbridge’s family office service business, Heather has over 15 years’ experience in the private client arena and joined Crestbridge this year from a wealth management business, whose Jersey office she helped establish. Having worked initially in Jersey, Heather spent 11 years working in London before returning to the island in 2010. In her capacity as a lawyer in the UK and Jersey, Heather has previously advised individuals, intermediaries and trustees in relation to offshore matters. She is a Member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).
Launched earlier this summer, Crestbridge’s family office service focuses on assisting families, family offices and family advisers with the administration and structuring of various vehicles used as part of family office arrangements, particularly those involving multi-generational and multi-jurisdictional family assets.
Commenting on her inclusion in the list, Heather said:
“The whole philosophy behind launching our family office service was to provide specialist administration and corporate governance support to the family office sector that was of an institutional quality. For those standards to be acknowledged in this list is fantastic, as it reflects our belief that there is a real need in the market for these levels of support. Personally, it is particularly pleasing to be named alongside a number of women who have such well-established reputations within the private client landscape.”
Paul Perris, Managing Director of Crestbridge’s Family Office service, added:
“Heather fully deserves to be recognised in this list. She has an incredible amount of international private client experience and undoubtedly adds significant knowledge and expertise to our team. This is an exciting time of growth for Crestbridge and our family office business is a major part of that growth, so to have people of Heather’s calibre within our dedicated family office team is absolutely vital. We are looking forward to further success and growth in our cross-border family office administration services in the coming months.”
Crestbridge, formerly known as DCG, has undergone a major rebrand this year and since 2011 has increased the size of its team in Jersey by over 30%. With a 15 year pedigree in financial services, Crestbridge administers over US$50 billion of assets across multi-jurisdictional structures and supports a broad range of blue chip clients.
Crestbridge is the new name and brand for Dominion Corporate Group (DCG), and has its head office at 47 Esplanade, St Helier, Jersey.
