VG retains GIFA Best Islamic Trust Formation Services Award.

VG was recognised at the Global Islamic Finance Awards (GIFA) on 6th September 2017, when the company was named Best Islamic Trust Formation Services Provider for the second year running. 

VG impressed the judges with its exceptional commitment to developing innovative solutions for Islamic clients for over 20 years, building on its significant expertise and experience in Islamic finance structuring and administration. The award recognises those financial providers who demonstrate excellence in the quality of their offerings, the extent to which their services cross international borders and their promotion of growth within the global Islamic financial services industry.

Trevor Norman, Director of Islamic Finance and Funds, commented on this latest accolade: “It is an honour for VG to once again receive this prestigious award which is testimony to our team’s deep understanding of Islamic finance. For over two decades we have been committed to developing strategies that are specifically aligned to Shariah principles and are working closely with our partners and clients across the globe to continue to provide a world-class service that meets their individual needs whilst remaining respectful to the structures of their specific region.” 

This industry recognition consolidates VG's leading global position as an Islamic finance partner of choice. Mark Hucker, Managing Director, VG, continues: “Our client base is truly international, but we are particularly well known for our work in structuring and administering Shariah-compliant funds and special purpose vehicles on behalf of Islamic financial institutions. This is a rapidly growing area of interest in the Middle East, Asia and beyond and we are proud of the work we have done with our key partners. Trevor and the team deserve a special mention for their commitment and expertise.”
