Nick Batiste, Managing Director of Saffery Holdings Limited, said: 

“I welcome Paul and Philip to the board. They bring with them real depth of expertise and experience which will be hugely valuable as we continue to enhance and evolve our business. Paul has been fundamental to our successful, and rapid, growth in Switzerland and subsequent expansion with our new Cayman offering, while Philip continues to play a key role in the development of our trust business and wider advisory services both in Guernsey and through our office in Dubai. This international outlook and experience mirrors our increasingly global and complex client base and, therefore, our business strategy – which Paul and Philip will play a key part in shaping and delivering.”
