We are delighted to announce that VG has been recognised at the 2021 Citywealth IFC Awards on 23 February 2021 where we won Gold in the Independent Trust Company of the Year category.


Now in their 10th year, the awards are judged by an international panel of highly respected practitioners from all private wealth sectors covering all jurisdictions. The 2021 Citywealth IFC Awards, which took place virtually, were established to highlight the excellence of the advisers and managers in the private wealth sector in the major international financial centres. Karen Jones, Editor of Citywealth, commented “IFC corporates, their management and staff demonstrate year after year a sophisticated approach to sustainability for their human capital and clients. 2021 brought this into focus and the judges commend all those shortlisted and our winners for excellence of operation and standards during an unprecedented time in history.”
