Suntera Global has won silver for Deal of the Year 2021 for their purchase of Helm Trust Company and subsequent rebrand to Suntera in 2020, and bronze for Trust Company of the Year-Jersey at Citywealth’s International Financial Centre (IFC) Awards 2021 which were presented via a virtual awards ceremony on 23rd February 2021.
Citywealth’s IFC Awards were established a decade ago to recognise and highlight excellence within the private wealth sector across the major international financial centres. The prestigious awards are judged by an international panel of highly respected private wealth practitioners from a range of sectors and jurisdictions worldwide.
Claire Machin, Group Director and Head of Private Wealth in Suntera’s Jersey office said: ‘It is an honour to receive these accolades and be recognised within the industry we are so passionate about. Since Helm was acquired by Suntera, we have been afforded greatly enhanced opportunities and the resources to achieve our ambitions both within Jersey and the wider private wealth industry.
During this time, we have enjoyed significant growth and have proudly recruited 16 new team members in Jersey. We also moved into bespoke new offices, mid-pandemic, to allow for the expansion of the business and to provide a more global feel and offering to our clients. All of this has allowed us to provide a high standard of service to our clients and we would like to thank Citywealth for this recognition for both our staff and our clients in what has been an otherwise challenging 12 months.’
David Hudson, Group CEO at Suntera Global, added: ‘We are immensely proud to accept these awards as it recognises all of the hard work that we have put in over the past year. Both the acquisition of Helm and our rebrand to Suntera have been well-received both internally and externally and have given us a platform to grow even further as an international provider of corporate, funds and private wealth services.
This award is a testament to the staff's continued commitment and dedication in what was undoubtedly a challenging year for all, and I would like to thank them for their continued support. We look forward to building on this success and our renewed vision as we set our sights on exciting new opportunities and ambitions in the future.’
