Our first names


The first name in pragmatism

Annmarie Blake is a Trust Manager in our Jersey office where she and her team provide administration services to a range of private and corporate clients. Open to change, she sees opportunities where other might see challenges. Having grown up in Jersey, Annmarie started her career in employee benefit trusts with Sanne Group. She subsequently moved to Luxembourg, gaining experience in securitisation, funds and real estate before returning to Jersey and the island’s fiduciary sector as a senior administrator.

Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.

Annmarie has worked in the financial industry since she graduated from the University of Leicester with a degree in history. That interest in historical facts and figures and the associated attention to detail have served her well in her career. She has since added an Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrator’s diploma to her name.

Annmarie has a pragmatic, collaborative approach to work and is pleased to call many of her colleagues good friends. She’s particularly appreciative of John Hughes who she says can always be relied upon to see things from a different angle.


When she gets a spare moment in the future, Annemarie would love to make her half marathon a whole one. She’d also like to learn to fly a plane, travel the world and see the Northern Lights – in no particular order.
