Martyn Crespel

  • Director, PraxisIFM Trust SA and Chairman, PraxisIFM Trust Ltd
  • UAE

Martyn has been in the international fiduciary industry for over 40 years.

Born in Jersey, after a period in the British Virgin Islands and Hong Kong he returned to establish his own business which was later acquired by a Dutch private banking group.

After moving to Switzerland in 2002 to establish Equity Trust (now part of the TMF Group), Martyn then set up Ampersand Management SA, a niche multi-family office/fiduciary business. Ampersand Management was acquired by the PraxisIFM Group in May 2016 and Martyn was subsequently appointed Managing Director of the Swiss trust company.  Martyn is also Chairman for the UAE operations based in Abu Dhabi and going forward is spending more time based in the UAE.  He specialises in corporate governance for single family offices and trust and estate planning for Sharia compliant clients and has a truly international client base.

Martyn was appointed to the PraxisIFM Group board of directors in December 2020.

Step qualified, Martyn sits on a number of investment committees for clients and charities and is on the STEP TMPI steering committee.

In February 2021 Martyn was recognised on the Global Elite – Elite Recommends list which features an exclusive list of just 200 leading advisers, including accountants, asset managers, trustees and family office experts as nominated by Global Elite lawyers.
