14 May 2018

We are delighted to announce that First Names Group was awarded ‘Trust Company of the Year – Large’ at the Citywealth 2018 Magic Circle Awards last Thursday night.

Billed as “the premier awards for the financial sector”, the Magic Circle Awards aim to identify the very best of the global industry. Previously, First Names Group came runner-up for ‘Trust Company of the year – Independent’ in the 2017 awards.

This year’s winners were announced at a black tie awards dinner in London on Thursday 10 May. Present to collect our award were Lorraine Wheeler, client services director in our Jersey office, and Stuart Dowding, managing director of First Names Hong Kong.

Our Chief Commercial Officer, Kevin O’Connell commented:

“Winning this award is fantastic news and a welcome testament to the strength of our business. We pride ourselves on delivering superior client service and have also been highly ambitious in terms of our international growth in recent years, so it’s great to see our efforts recognised. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our hard-working First Names who’ve helped us stand out as Trust Company of the Year.”

First Names Group is set to join forces with SGG Group following the acquisition announcement in December 2017. This transaction is currently subject to regulatory approval.
