Three Saffery Trust Directors have been listed in the Private Client Global Elite Directory 2024 in the advisor category.
Dubai Managing Director, Ajay Wiltshire, Guernsey and Cayman Director, Lisa Vizia, retained their standing in the directory, while Trust Director Dominic Lawton-Smith was added to the list after joining the private client firm in 2023.
Professionals listed in the directory are nominated by intermediaries within the private client industry for demonstrating excellent technical expertise, being masters of communication, and for the strength of their client relationships.
The directory is used as a guide for legal professionals looking for referrals, family offices and professional advisors.
Lisa, Ajay and Dominic have more than 80 years’ combined experience across a broad spectrum of private client services. All three Directors are recognised as thought leaders within the wealth industry as published authors and are regular speakers at international events.
Lisa is highly regarded by clients and intermediaries and holds multiple titles and awards including Leading Individual Advisor, Outstanding Individual of the Year and repeat listings as one of eprivateclient’s “50 Most Influential”. Alongside Ajay, she has been named in the Private Global Elite Directory since 2019.
With over 20 years’ experience as a lawyer, Ajay has worked with some of the firm’s highest profile clients assisting the Directors and intermediary partners with structuring, asset protection and contentious matters. He relocated to Dubai launching the firm’s representative office in 2018. He is also a member of the International Bar Association Private Client Tax Committee.
Dominic has lived and worked in the United States, the Cayman Islands and Switzerland and is currently based in London, working with all our international offices. He holds an advanced degree (LLM) in International Business Law and has completed postgraduate studies in Constitutional Law in the United States, where he is certified as an Accredited Certified Exit Planning Advisor.
Lisa said: “The Private Client Global Elite Directory is a top tier ranking for wealth industry professionals. Client service is a core pillar of Saffery Trust, so to continue to be recognised as a leader, alongside Ajay, in delivering a first-class service is an honour.
“Dominic’s inclusion to the directory this year is well-deserved and a testament to the high quality of our team. Dominic has proven himself to be a valuable addition to the firm, supporting each of our international offices and building relationships with our network of global specialist advisors for the benefit of our clients.”
