Highvern makes two promotions
Financial services provider Highvern Trustees has made two senior promotions in its private client trust business in Jersey.
Ross Collins has been appointed as Associate Director within Highvern’s newly formed Family Office Services team.
Ross has over 16 years experience within the trust industry in Jersey and joined Highvern (previously operating as Coutts & Co Trustees) in 2014 as a Trust Manager.
He has worked with the firm’s ultra-high-net-worth Middle Eastern families and has become a key co-ordinator for them and their third-party advisers and agents.
Ross will work with Naomi Rive, Group Director and Head of Family Office, to help the firm continue to meet the growing and increasingly complex needs of international families.
In addition, Magdelena Gruell has been promoted to Associate Director within the Middle East and Central Europe team at Highvern.
Magda has worked with the business for the past eight years, also as a Trust Manager, gaining exposure to a wide range of clients in the UK, Middle East and Central Europe.
She has experience of working with complex structures holding a diverse range of assets, as well as helping clients navigate tax and legal issues.
Magda will continue to work with Philip Carlton, Private Client Director, focusing on the firm’s Middle Eastern market.
