04th March 2022

Suntera Global has won gold and silver awards at Citywealth’s Powerwomen Awards which were presented last night (Thursday 3rd March) at Hay Hill in London. Anne Baggesen won gold in the ‘Woman of the Year – Leadership – Financial Organisation (Managing Director)’ category and Claire Machin won the silver award for ‘Woman of the Year – Leadership – Financial Organisation (CEO/Board Member)’.

Citywealth’s Powerwomen Awards were established to champion women in the wealth sector and highlight the female leaders of today and tomorrow. The awards recognise individuals and companies who maximise the potential of women in wealth and spotlights those who support caregiving responsibilities, female leadership and celebrate diversity.

The results were decided based on a combination of judging from a panel of private wealth professionals and from an online public vote.

These awards follow on from Suntera’s recent wins at the Citywealth IFC Awards on 26th January where the Group won the silver award for Trust Company of the Year – Isle of Man and Anne Baggesen won the bronze award for Trustee of the Year – Channel Islands & Isle of Man.

Anne Baggesen, Managing Director of Suntera’s Private Wealth Division, said: “These are uncertain and complex times with clients understandably demanding strong leadership from their advisers. With that in mind, it’s really pleasing that we are so well represented in initiatives like this that serve to highlight a commitment to leadership, diversity and inclusion.”

Claire Machin, Group Director and Head of Private Wealth in Suntera’s Jersey office added: “The strength of our private client proposition lies in our joined-up multi-jurisdictional approach to supporting clients, and for two of our offices to be represented through these Awards is testament to that.”

David Hudson, Group CEO at Suntera Global, commented: “Our ethos is built around empowering each other to responsibly achieve individual ambition but also collective success. Anne and Claire’s recognition in these Awards is a reflection of that – their contribution to the Group is considerable and plays an enormous part in driving forward our private client team as a whole.”
