City Trustees Client Relationship Managers

The strength of our business is a testament to our staff, who are integral to our core values and the delivery of the client service we strive to maintain. Each client has a dedicated account manager, typically from a graduate background, to manage all aspects of scheme administration. Due to our deliberate strategy of maintaining a client to account manager ratio that is significantly lower than the industry average, we are able to deliver a hands-on proactive and personal administration function.

Through a willingness to undertake all HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) permitted transactions without restriction, our structure enables the team to efficiently undertake more sophisticated and complex arrangements, particularly surrounding property, joint ventures and other business-related transactions. Our focus is to remain strong on integrity and compliance ensuring our clients' schemes are administered with the attention to detail that is appropriate within a regulated environment.
