We are delighted to share that FY20/21 saw a 225% increase in new business versus prior year, despite the uncertainty of the last 12 months, and we kicked-off the new financial year (May 1 2021) with two promotions and a raft of new joiners to support our rapidly growing business.


Aaron Smith, who joined VG in 2018 with over ten years’ experience in finance and commercial property management, has been promoted to Senior Trust Officer. Aaron specialises in managing VG’s restricted services clients and is responsible for the effective and efficient administration of a varied portfolio of complex structures notably including two large corporate clients, an automotive group and a UK property development group. Within the private wealth team Tommy Ling, who joined VG in 2020 as a Trainee Trust Administrator after exiting a seven-year career in the travel industry, is promoted to the position of Trust Administrator. Joining Tommy within the private wealth team is new starter Matt Philpott, who was appointed as Trust Administrator.

With VG’s growth not just limited to the private wealth business, VG has appointed two Trainee Fund Administrators, Zach Ellam and Lewis Mold, within its funds team to bolster the increased demand for VG’s fund administration solutions.

We have also strengthened our technology and compliance teams to support the increased demand. Gareth Ashby is appointed Business Intelligence Solutions Developer and is responsible for supporting the delivery of VG’s strategic goals through the introduction of new solutions, process automation and management information reporting. Gareth brings over 20 years’ experience maintaining and developing solutions within the finance and medical industry. Jessica Giraffa joins as a Compliance Administrator with responsibility for supporting the compliance team with a broad range of compliance administration.

Congratulating the promotions and welcoming new joiners Iain Mason, Managing Director commented: "The growth in new business enquiries and clients appointing VG as their chosen solutions provider over the last 12 months is testament to our dedicated team’s desire to exceed the expectations of clients and intermediaries, set by a largely private equity-backed local industry, and build the reputation of VG within the industry. It is only fitting that we reward dedication and desire with career development and that our recruitment strategy actively seeks to attract the right people from across the local industry who can help to shape the future of the business. We wish Aaron and Tommy success in their new roles and welcome our new joiners!”
