Vanessa Schrum and Alison MacKrill, Partners at Appleby, have been named as two of the IFC’s Top 200 Powerwomen of 2018.
The IFC Powerwomen Top 200 list focuses on successful professionals in the global private wealth industry and celebrates and unites powerful women.
It recognises women of achievement who are trailblazers in their field, helping to promote business excellence in their home jurisdiction and consolidating the reputations of the financial services industry globally.
Ms MacKrill, Group Partner and Local Practice Group Head of the Private Client & Trusts department in the Guernsey office, joined Appleby in 2017. She was called to the Bermuda bar in 2000 and has worked in Guernsey for the last fifteen years, advising clients in various offshore jurisdictions.
“I am honoured to have been included in this list for the fifth year alongside such an influential group of women who promote business excellence both locally and across their global networks," she said.
Ms Schrum is a Partner and Local Practice Group Head of the Private Client & Trusts department in Bermuda. She has experience in a wide range of trust and estate planning matters. She regularly advises on the use of Bermuda private and commercial trust structures (including purpose trusts and unit trusts), pension trusts, trust restructuring often with a multi-jurisdictional element.
Ms Schrum said: “I am proud to have been included again within this prestigious report and would like to congratulate all of the other women who have been recognised for their achievements, expertise and excellence.”
Carlos de Serpa Pimentel, Global Head of Appleby’s Private Client and Trusts department, commented: "We are delighted that Alison and Vanessa have been recognised as two of the most powerful women in their field this year.
