RAVENSCROFT was named silver winners in two categories at Citywealth IFC Awards, which recognises the excellence of private wealth advisers and managers in the major international financial centres.
Ravenscroft was the Silver winner in the Investment Management Company of the Year – Channel Islands/Isle of Man category and Haydn Taylor, managing director of Ravenscroft in Jersey, won Silver for Investment Manager of the Year – Channel Islands & Isle of Man.
‘Independent recognition of the excellence and expertise of our team is always to be celebrated. This is the first time Ravenscroft has been shortlisted by Citywealth and so we are delighted to have won two silver awards, which is a reflection of the company’s continued growth and commitment to clients,’ said group managing director Mark Bousfield.
Citywealth editor Karen Jones said that the winners were chosen by a panel of industry judges and an online public voting system, which had received more than 5,000 votes. This was the 11th year the awards had been held.
‘The judges considered four key elements in selecting winners: innovation in services; excellence in communication with clients; and added value as well as fees. The winners were also judged against a benchmark of ESG factors that helped measure the businesses by its people, footprint and corporate initiatives. All awards winners excelled across these measurements and did so against strong competition,’ she said.
Mr Taylor, who attended the awards ceremony in London with portfolio manager Ben Byrom, said the calibre of the winners was a positive reflection on the wealth management sector.
‘As an industry, we are committed to helping our clients achieve their investment objectives. It has been an incredibly difficult two years with working from home, adapting to new ways of communicating with clients and markets reacting to a global pandemic but it was clear from those who were shortlisted and those who were named as winners that there is a plethora of skilled and experienced people and that can only be good for investors.’
