1 Year Already...Happy Birthday Accuro!
Today Accuro celebrates its first anniversary of its successful MBO.
Over the past year, our passion for excellence and making a difference in the global trust and Family Office sectors has enabled us to achieve quite a lot. Following the successful launch of our Accuro brand identity we were delighted to win the STEP Private Client Award for the Trust Company of the Year (mid-size) and to be included again in the Eprivateclient Top Trust Companies for 2017. We have expanded our footprint by opening our London and Zurich Representative Offices and launching our enhanced Family Office offering. Under our new branding we continued to sponsor the Accuro Jersey Triathlon with record numbers of participants and spectators alike. We have published no less than 20 thought leadership articles on a variety of subjects from “Trustees involvement in Family Business”, “Vision of the future of the Trust Industry and related M&A activities”, to more market focused contributions on Middle East, Africa, Switzerland, but also the “Impact of the Changing Regulations”, and innovation in Philanthropy to mention a few. Such rich content is reflective of the true diversity and interests of our clients and how we try at all times to remain relevant to them and their advisors. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our clients and intermediaries for working in true partnership with Accuro for the long-term.
It is encouraging that Accuro is delivering strong organic growth across all its offices despites a very competitive environment. However what drives us the most is Accuro’s future ambition to prosper overtime not only by delivering financial performance but also making a positive contribution to society, taking into account all its stakeholders, including clients, employees, shareholders and the communities in which it operate. This process has already started with Accuro’s Geneva office participating as pilot for Group to “Best For Geneva” program inspired by the B-Corp movement. It will soon lead to other initiatives like the launch of our “Accuro Academy” designed to steer our colleagues’ career in the right direction.
A big thank you to all of you who contributed to that positive start of Accuro!
