Congratulations to Hakim Berhoune, Director at PraxisIFM Trust SA, who has been named Trustee of the Year – Switzerland in the 2021 Citywealth IFC Awards.
This is the second consecutive year that a Director from our Switzerland Trust team has been named Trustee of the Year in their respective category, after Fritha Beck won the award in 2020.
The awards aim to celebrate and recognise teams and professionals who have excelled in leadership, innovation, expertise and service within the private wealth sector. Category winners were chosen after a public vote and assessment by a judging panel of industry experts.
Hakim joined PraxisIFM following the acquisition of his company Balmor Management SA in 2016. Since working with PraxisIFM, Hakim has been based in our Geneva office adding his 18 years’ experience in the international private client and corporate sector to our team.
Matt Nell, Managing Director of PraxisIFM Trust SA said: ‘This award speaks volumes for the calibre of our team in Geneva. To have two directors recognised in consecutive years is a fantastic achievement and having worked alongside both Hakim and Fritha, I know this award is very well deserved. Congratulations Hakim, our team and Group are very proud.’
Well done to our Hong Kong Trust team who also picked up bronze in the Trust Company of the Year – Hong Kong & Singapore category.
Rob Fearis Chief Executive Officer at PraxisIFM said: ‘The Hong Kong team had a change of management last summer when Joanna Caen took over from Melanie Ison, now based within our Guernsey team, as Managing Director. This recognition is a testament to the pair’s joint leadership experience and industry expertise, which made the transition seamless, and their team’s continued hard work. Congratulations.’
