12 June 2018 – Independent fiduciary and administration provider VG is thrilled to announce that Senior Trust Officer, Ben Schofield, has been named in the inaugural ‘Channel Islands Top 35 Under 35’ list published by eprivateclient.

Designed to identify, recognise, promote and introduce the rising stars of the Private Client practitioner community in the Channel Islands, the awards are wholly nominated by clients and judged by senior members of PAM Insight’s editorial team, which proves testament to Ben’s outstanding contribution to client excellence and service.

Ben Schofield joined VG in 2014 and is a Senior Trust Officer with responsibility for the day to day administration for a portfolio of different clients across the Private Client team. A major part of his role is to always try to form a strong and honest relationship with his clients, something borne out by his recognition today. Born and educated in Jersey, Ben holds both the ICSA Diploma and ICSA Certificate.

Simon Perchard, VG Director commented on Ben’s achievement, “Ben’s professionalism, dedication and tenacity have consistently delighted his clients and I am thrilled to see this has been recognised in this nomination. The fact that these awards are voted for by clients makes them even more prestigious and he is a true credit to the team and the business.”

Ben said, “It is a great achievement to be nominated in the Channel Islands Top 35 Under 35 and one that I wasn’t expecting. I always strive to work in the best interests of my clients, which makes being nominated even more special as it is a reflection on my core values which is to delight my clients and provide an excellent service.” 

The selection process for the list began with an open call for nominations from across the private wealth sector for young and upcoming stars within the private client advisory professions. The new initiative runs alongside the established UK and UK Crown Dependencies Top 35 Under 35 which Ben will also be considered for later this month.
