A double nomination in the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards has helped Crestbridge maintain its momentum in early 2020 and reinforced its leading position in the family office sector.

The firm is nominated in both the ‘Family Office of the Year’ and ‘Trust Company of the Year’ categories in the Awards, which bring together the best advisers in the wealth industry, with the winners being selected by the votes of Citywealth readers and set to be announced at an awards ceremony in London.

The nominations build on a number of successes for Crestbridge’s Family Office Services team this year, including concluding an innovative joint venture with US-based Willow Street to create Crestbridge Fiduciary, an enhanced proposition for US family office clients.

The firm was also a winner in the Citywealth Powerwomen Awards held in March, where Group Head of Family Office Services Heather Tibbo won a silver award in the  ‘Leadership in a Financial Organisation (Managing Director)’ category and the firm picked up a bronze award in the category for ‘Creating Change for Women’.

Earlier this year, Crestbridge also picked up two nominations in the Wealthbriefing European Awards for ‘Multi Family Office’ and ‘Independent Trust Company’.

Commenting on the strong start to the year, Heather Tibbo said: “Particularly at the current time in such unprecedented circumstances, families are wanting reassurance, certainty and expert support that they know they can rely on. Starting the year on such a strong footing and receiving this sort of industry recognition is helping our team to maintain momentum and setting us apart as a leading provider that can meet the expectations of families.”
