Firms with Bermuda links on awards shortlist
Five trust companies and four law firms with presences in Bermuda have been named to shortlists for the CityWealth International Financial Centre Awards.
Awards are made by CityWealth in nearly 40 categories, highlighting excellence in the wealth sector. The awards ceremony will be held next year on a date, and at a venue, yet to be announced.
Nominated for trust company of the year in the “Bahamas, Bermuda & Cayman” grouping are Butterfield Trust, Estera, Maples Group, Meritus Trust and Rawlinson & Hunter — all with a presence in Bermuda — as well as CIBC Bank & Trust Company, and Genesis Trust.
Nominated for law firm of the year in the “Bahamas, Bermuda & Cayman” subcategory are Appleby, Carey Olsen, Conyers, and Walkers — all of which operate on the island — as well as Bedell Cristin, Harneys, and Ogier.
The awards, now in their ninth year, are judged by an international panel of practitioners from all private wealth sectors covering all jurisdictions. Winners are those judged to have excelled in achievement, innovation, expertise and service.
CityWealth was founded in 2005 with the purpose of bringing together ultra-high-net-worth clients and their advisers and managers working in the private wealth sector. The organisation produces a mixture of publications, events, training sessions and networking groups.
