Citywealth magazine's inaugural international financial centre (IFC) power women top 100 list includes four Appleby professionals.

Appleby, which providers of offshore legal, fiduciary and administration services, clinched the four placings in the leading wealth sector magazine's new listing of top female professionals working in international financial centres. The list was published last Friday.

Farah Ballands, partner and global head of fiduciary and administration services; Naomi Rive, partner and Jersey practice group head, private client and trusts; Vanessa Schrum, partner and Bermuda practice group head, private client and trusts and Frances Woo, the group chairman and Hong Kong managing partner are the four women singled out for the list.

An Appleby's press release stated: “The Citywealth IFC power women top 100 is an A — Z of influencers and leading professionals working in financial services in international financial centres.”

The Citywealth Power Women Top 100 Listing follows Appleby's shortlisting in a record seven categories for the Citywealth international financial centre awards 2014. This is the first time any firm has been shortlisted in so many categories, according to their press release.

It stated: “The ‘Power List' has been compiled using independent research undertaken for the Citywealth Leaders List 2013, and through recommendations from global peers, clients, leading wealth managers and advisers worldwide.

“The list focuses on influencers as well as professionals, and celebrates powerful women from diverse backgrounds.

“It recognises women of achievement who are opinion formers, promoting business excellence in their own jurisdictions and consolidating the reputation of the global international financial services sector.”

Commenting on Appleby's placings, Ms Woo said: “Independent recognition like this is a significant endorsement. Whilst as individuals it is a great honour to appear in this list, it is also a reflection of the strength, expertise and high levels of innovation and quality of our teams across Appleby as well as our commitment to Appleby's long tradition of equality of opportunity, wherever we do business.”

Ms Ballands added: “We are pleased that Citywealth has recognised our strength in (the) depth and the quality of our teams as opinion formers and promoting business excellence across the main international financial centres.

All four of us are honoured to represent the abundance of talent that exists at Appleby.”
