Professional Biography

I head up Standard Bank’s fiduciary offering in Jersey. We specialise in the establishment and administration of bespoke fiduciary structures for UHNW families, with a specific focus on those with a UK residence and those connected to Africa by way of residence, origin or investment. I have over twenty years’ experience in the trust industry and have worked in both Jersey and the Cayman Islands. I have significant experience working with international families, implementing complex estate plans and investing in large investment portfolios, direct companies, private equity and residential and commercial property. I am a Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners and a member of the STEP International Client SIG Committee. I frequently draft articles for private client publications and speak at industry specific events. I was educated in South Africa and England
