06 Oct 2015

Bedell Trust and Singapore Trust Company are delighted to announce the recruitment of Robert Ayliffe as Bedell Trust, Managing Director Asia, with effect from 1st November 2015.

Robert, who has been based in Singapore for the past two years, qualified as a Chartered Accountant in Jersey in 1996. He spent over 15 years with one of the big four international accountancy firms specialising in financial services and working in Jersey, Kuala Lumpur and London. In 2007 he joined another major group to specialise in trust, corporate and fund administration services, for the last two years concentrating on business development from Singapore.

Following the acquisition by Bedell Trust of a majority stake in Singapore Trust Company, he will be taking up the opportunity to focus on growing these service lines for Bedell Trust and Singapore Trust Company in the Asian region. In that respect he will be working alongside the Managing Director of Singapore Trust Company, Rudy Tan, and with Michael Richardson as Executive Chairman of Bedell Trust, who has led the expansion of Bedell Trust's services in Asia for the past five years.

Robert commented:

"I am glad to have had the opportunity of joining Bedell Trust and Singapore Trust Company at an exciting time in the development of the group. The heritage and reputation of those organisations should provide an excellent platform to take advantage of the wider range of business opportunities in Asia, not just in Singapore, but also for the wider Bedell Trust Group in Jersey, Guernsey, London, Dublin and Mauritius".
