VG has once again been recognised in the annual eprivateclient Top Trust Companies rankings, one of the industry’s most prestigious directories of private-client solutions providers across the globe.

The eprivateclient Top Trust Company rankings are an in-depth analysis of both independent and non-independent firms, aimed at reflecting the needs of clients and their advisors. For this year’s listing, VG has been named in the top independent firms, as determined by continued reputation, quality of service, the extent of the firm’s global offering and performance over the past twelve months.

Managing Director, Iain Mason, commented on the announcement, “The last twelve months have been challenging for many in the industry and at VG we have worked hard to build a robust team to meet the current and future needs of our clients. The eprivateclient rankings are an important barometer of the industry and, despite the evolving landscape, we are thrilled to have once again been recognised.”

Debbie Lumsden, Private Client Director, adds “VG is a truly independent, owner managed firm, which is focussed on delivering exceptional client service exclusively from Jersey. Our independence matters to our clients and partners as it means commercial decisions can be made quickly and they have direct access to the key decision makers. We are proud to have supported private clients for more than 35 years and are excited about continuing to build our private wealth structuring business as part of VG’s next phase of growth.”
