Highvern, a Jersey-headquartered independent fiduciary and fund services provider, has opened a new London office.
The firm aims to be highly accessible to its clients and their advisers and believes its new London office will help with that.
Moving forward, the London office will be able to service clients not only from Jersey but will also be able to respond to a growing demand to service clients with UK based private wealth and corporate structuring requirements.
Stefan Le Marquand has recently relocated to the capital from Jersey.
Despite the third lockdown, he is already engaging with a number of prospective clients and their professional advisers to facilitate the establishment of robust private wealth and corporate structure, the firm said.
Mr Le Marquand has been with the firm since 2018, having previously worked at Ocorian. He was named an eprivateclient Top 35 Under 35 in 2019.
“Establishing a presence in London, post Brexit, is an endorsement of the UK’s ongoing pivotal status as a centre of advisory excellence for clients engaged in legal structuring,” Highvern said.
Working in close collaboration, Highvern believes that UK advisers and professional service providers based in leading international finance centres have a great deal to offer clients with structuring needs.
Martin Hall, managing director, said: “As we begin extending our footprint internationally, a presence in London is a natural early step for Highvern.
“Stefan has already made an impact and, as we grow our UK based team, we very much look forward to engaging even more with the professional intermediary market in the private wealth, corporate and funds arena.”
