First Names Group retains Top Trust Company status for 2018

7 June 2018

We are proud to announce that First Names Group has once again been recognised as a Tier I trust company in this year’s eprivateclient Top Trust Companies listing.

Top Trust Companies constitutes “an in-depth look at the leading fiduciary service providers for private clients across the globe.” According to eprivateclient, “the tiers are not based on size alone but on reputation, quality of service, how the firms have fared in the past 12 months, any M&A activity, as well as the extent of their global offering.”

The annual ranking took on its current form in 2017, having previously been titled ‘Top 25 Trust Companies’. A total of 36 companies are included in the 2018 list, split across three tiers. First Names Group is among the 13 firms that have made it to the top tier.

Notably we also made it to Tier I in 2017, and before that we were named among eprivateclient’s Top 25 Trust Companies for six years in a row.

Our Group Managing Director for Private Client, Gary Hepburn, said of the news:

“At First Names Group our Private Client service line continues to perform exceptionally well and being named as part of a select group of top-tier trust companies for the second year running, on top of a number of other recent award successes, is a very welcome testament to that. Of course, we’d be nowhere without the consistent hard work, commitment and overall excellence of our people, so I want to say a big thank you to the entire Private Client team for making this achievement a reality.”
