We're delighted to welcome Wendy Inns as Director, subject to regulatory approval, and Katherine Heddercott to VG as we further bolster our private wealth team.


Wendy brings more than 25 years’ experience and joins from Jersey-based trust company Hawksford, where she held the role of Director for five years, leading a highly experienced team and working with high profile clients. Wendy’s wealth of knowledge around navigating relationships with HNW and UHNW clients stems from her previous roles as Associate Director at former trust company Minerva, alongside roles at Ogier and a number of global banks. Wendy has been named as a ‘Prominent Individual’ as part of the CityWealth Management Leaders list for the past four years. Wendy commented “I am excited to have joined the team at VG where service excellence and building long-lasting client partnerships will very much be my focus”.

The recent strengthening builds on a wave of new private wealth business at VG, with inquiries rising by more than 60% in the past year. Wendy and her team will work alongside the wider private wealth teams to continue the business’s promising growth trajectory.

Joining Wendy’s newly formed team, VG welcomes Katherine Heddercott who will work alongside Wendy as an Assistant Manager. Katherine has 16 years’ experience in the trust industry, joining from Hawksford, where she worked alongside Wendy for 5 years. Wendy’s team will also be enhanced by the relocation of senior trust officer, Samantha Bohan, who has been part of the wider private wealth team at VG for several years.

Iain Mason, Managing Director at VG, commented on the new hires “The past year has seen the private wealth offering at VG ride a strong wave of increased demand, and the hires of Wendy and Katherine signal our intent to further VG’s position as a leading provider of private wealth services. The recent surge in demand has signalled that our clients are best served by dedicated director-led teams. We believe these appointments will add a cutting edge to the wider private wealth team and demonstrates our strategy to attract top-tier talent.”
