Bedell Trust CEO selected as one of the most influential for fifth time26 Nov 2015
Nick Cawley, partner and chief executive officer at Bedell Trust, has again been included in the list of top 50 most influential private client professionals.
It is the fifth consecutive time that Nick has featured in the list which is compiled by eprivateclient, one of the leading online magazine titles in the wealth management industry. It recognises the contribution of top private client professionals throughout the UK and British offshore jurisdictions, who are at ‘the forefront in shaping private client work’.
Nick continues to lead the firm’s business expansion programme which has this year included the acquisition of a majority stake in Singapore Trust Company, adding appreciably to the firm’s capabilities in Asian markets. While managing further planned expansion in other key locations, he presides over a strategy that ensures a commitment to premium client service remains the over–riding focus.
At the head of the business since 2004, his recruitment strategy ensures that carefully selected, highly qualified people are hired in key markets to further strengthen the firm’s cross border expertise and client services capabilities. He is committed to the personal career development of the people working for the business at all levels and during the last three years nearly 50 people at the firm have achieved promotion, while staff turnover has remained consistently low.
Under Nick’s leadership, Bedell Trust continues to win recognition within the industry and this year the business was named among eprivateclient’s ‘Top 25 Trust Companies’ for the sixth consecutive year and the ‘Top 25 Most Admired Companies’ for the fifth time in succession.
Bedell Family Office, which was strengthened in 2013 to enhance its offering to high net worth clients, was recognised as the Best Multi Family Office in Wealth Advisers Awards and Bedell’s funds’ team was judged Investment Week’s Best Fund Administration Team of the Year 2014/15 and International Fund Services Firm of the Year Channel Islands in the Global Fund Awards 2015.
Nick himself won the ‘Editor’s Choice award' in the Citywealth IFC awards 2015 for his contribution to the industry and he has been included in the ‘Honours List’ in the ‘leading trustees’ category in the Citywealth Leaders list for four consecutive years.
