First Names Group is a leading independent provider of trust, corporate, real estate and fund administration services, operating in multiple strategic locations worldwide. We deliver bespoke structuring and administration solutions to an international client base including multinational companies, institutional investors, entrepreneurs and ultra-high-net-worth families.
We’ve been in the business for over 25 years and in 2018 we became part of SGG Group. SGG Group is the world’s fourth largest independent investor services firm (by revenue) and currently employs over 2,450 people across 24 jurisdictions.
Our ability to operate on a global scale through a growing network of strategically located offices is fundamental to our success, allowing us to draw from an extensive, integrated, multi-jurisdictional platform of expertise and processes. Our presence – and knowledge of the regulatory landscape – in so many of the world’s key financial jurisdictions means we can comfortably respond to the varied and specific needs of our clients, either directly or working with their trusted advisers.
And, as an independent firm, we are free of the conflicts often associated with institution-owned trust companies. Not only do we have the agility to make decisions quickly, we have complete freedom to choose the right banks and investment houses to work with in line with our clients’ individual requirements.
We take a director-led team approach to client service and have a clear focus on professional qualifications among our people, with many accountants, trust and estate practitioners, lawyers and chartered secretaries providing the necessary expertise.
We recognise that our people are our greatest asset and through our culture of independence we’re proud to give them the freedom to forge long-term, mutually rewarding client relationships, to grow as professionals and prosper as individuals.
At the heart of our success lies a firm commitment to helping our clients, professional intermediaries and our very own ‘First Names’ achieve their goals. We believe this strong people focus sets us apart from the competition and results in delivery of the very best client service.
