Ocorian wins 2016/2017 'Trust Company of the Year' award

19 Sep 2016

Ocorian (formerly Bedell Trust) has been named 'Trust Company of the Year' at the annual STEP 2016/2017 awards ceremony.

The award which is judged by an independent panel of private wealth industry recognised practitioners is widely seen as one of the most preeminent accolades within the industry and is the second time in recent years Bedell Trust has achieved this award with STEP. This achievement follows earlier recognition for Bedell Trust when in May 2016, we also received 'Trust Company of the Year' at the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards.

The presiding judges for the STEP award explained:

"We were impressed by Ocorian’s clear focus on engagement in the sector, stellar reputation and unrivalled commitment to clients. The message that comes across loud and clear is that their clients are at the core of everything they do."

Nick Cawley, Chief Executive Officer at Ocorian commented:

"We are delighted to be recognised as the leading Trust Company by STEP. The award is subject to rigorous and independent assessment by our peers and reflects the absolute commitment our staff place on delivering the very best service to our clients.

This comes at an exciting time in the evolution of Bedell Trust as we have also successfully completed our management buyout ("MBO"), a strategic move designed to ensure we continue on our path of increased growth whilst remaining fully focused on serving our clients."
