Butterfield Group boosts trust team
Butterfield Group has bolstered its trust team with two senior appointments.
Amy Glover has been appointed vice-president, strategic relationships for Group Trust, and Mark Farrell has joined as head of trust at Butterfield Trust (Asia) Ltd.
Ms Glover will be based in London, while Mr Farrell will be based in Singapore.
A spokesman said the moves come as Butterfield Group continues to focus on developing its business in Asia and enhancing services to meet the needs of high net worth families, internationally.
The spokesman said Ms Glover was most recently the global director of private client for ALM/Legal Week, where she was responsible for the management of the private client intermediary network, and integral to the success of their global elite membership club. As vice-president, strategic relationships, she will play a key role internationally in developing relationships between Butterfield and financial intermediaries and advisers serving high net worth families.
Mr Farrell has been working in the private client industry for more than 30 years, specialising in wealth planning and trust administration. He has extensive experience dealing with multi-jurisdictional families and advising on complex structuring for a wide variety of asset classes.
During his career, he has worked for banks and law firms in the United Kingdom and Switzerland, as well as prominent trust companies in Singapore, where he held senior management positions and acted as a key contact for significant client relationships, Butterfield said.
Mr Farrell will lead the Butterfield team responsible for the provision of trust and fiduciary services to high net worth families in the region.
Jane Pearce, group head of trust, said: “We are pleased to welcome Amy and Mark to the Butterfield team, where their knowledge of the London and Asia markets will enhance our ability to connect with and serve international high net worth families and their advisers. Their appointments reflect our commitment to the growth of our core Trust business, and the value we place on service and experience.”
