Butterfield Trust has been recognised at the annual Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners Awards which highlight excellence among private client solicitors, accountants, barristers, bankers, trust managers and financial advisors as well as including a wide range of award categories across all sectors of the industry.
Nominees are put through a rigorous, practitioner-led judging process and winners are considered by STEP to be the best in the industry in their areas of specialisation.
The judges were quoted by STEP as saying: "Butterfield Trust’s entry demonstrated integrity and an impressive global reach, which has been strengthened by important, high-quality acquisitions that confirms its commitment to excellence in this space."
Butterfield Trust comprises separately incorporated trust companies in seven locations—The Bahamas, Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, New Zealand, Singapore and Switzerland—and administers more than $105 billion in trust assets (as of 30 September 2018).
Michael Collins, Butterfield’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said: "Trust is a core business, one in which we are investing for continued growth. Our peer-professionals have recognised our progress in developing the leading international trust franchise, and we are honoured that Butterfield Trust has received this prestigious award. Congratulations to the entire team."
Bob Moore, Butterfield’s Head of Group Trust, said: "Butterfield has been a leader in the provision of offshore trust and fiduciary services for more than 80 years, and trust services continue to be a key part of the bespoke financial solutions we are able to offer our international clients. Being selected as STEP’s Trust Company of the Year from a pool of prestigious and deserving candidates is a great honour and reflects the breadth of solutions and the expertise that Butterfield Trust has developed over those many years, along with our unwavering focus on client service excellence."
