We’re very proud to announce that PraxisIFM has been shortlisted for three Citywealth International Financial Centre (IFC) Awards, highlighting the excellence of the Group’s private client and corporate services in the major international financial centres.
The Group’s Guernsey and Hong Kong Trust teams have both been shortlisted for Trust Company of the Year 2021 – Guernsey and Hong Kong & Singapore respectively. Hakim Berhoune, Director at PraxisIFM Trust SA has also been shortlisted for Trustee of the Year – Switzerland.
Now in their tenth year, the Awards celebrate international excellence within the private wealth sector and recognise industry professionals who have excelled in leadership, innovation, expertise and service. Shortlist recipients are selected by a panel of international industry experts, after which, category winners are chosen from a combination of the judging panel and public vote.
Hakim, who is based in our Geneva office, has over 17 years’ experience in Switzerland in the international fiduciary industry and set up Balmor Management SA, which was later acquired by PraxisIFM in 2016. Hakim follows in fellow colleague Fritha Beck’s footsteps, after she was shortlisted for Trustee of the Year – Switzerland in Citywealth’s 2020 IFC Awards and went on to win the category.
Rob Fearis Chief Executive Officer at PraxisIFM said ‘It is always fantastic to receive recognition for the expertise and service we offer clients and the calibre of our professionals. I wish Hakim and both the Guernsey and Hong Kong offices the best of luck in the awards and thank all those whose hard work, dedication and resilience throughout this past year has contributed to these nominations.’
