Guernsey firms recognised for excellence at HFMWeek Awards

08 April 2014

Guernsey service providers have been recognised at the HFMWeek European Hedge Fund Services Awards 2014.

The awards, held at the Hurlingham Club in London, saw Legis Group named 'Best Administrator - Under $30bn Fund of Hedge Funds' and Mourant Ozannes named 'Best offshore Law Firm for Client Service'.

The awards recognised and celebrated the success of service providers who excelled throughout 2013. The awards featured a number of categories acknowledging the leading hedge fund service providers in the European marketplace. Judging was undertaken by a panel of senior industry representatives based on performance results, qualitative information and customer testimonials.

Stuart Platt-Ransom, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Legis Group, said he was pleased that the fund services business had been recognised by HFMWeek for a third consecutive year.

"It is extremely rewarding to receive this recognition from such a respected hedge fund publication as our fund service business continues to grow.  We aim to differentiate ourselves on client service so to receive this award, which recognises the expertise and quality of service, is testament to our dedicated and professional team," said Mr Platt-Ransom.

Legis Fund Services Managing Director Patricia White, who collected the award on behalf of the company, said: "It is a privilege to be recognised once again by HFMWeek, it has been a promising year for our fund division and this accolade reflects the hard work and dedication of our funds services team."

Legis Group had previously won the 'Best administrator - under $30bn Fund of Hedge Funds' category in 2012 and then 'Best administrator - under $30bn client service' in 2013.

Ahead of its 2014 success, Mourant Ozannes had previously been awarded 'Best Offshore Law Firm - Client Services' at both the European and US HFMWeek Awards in 2012. In 2013 the firm retained the accolade at the US Hedge Fund Services Awards as well as receiving 'Best Offshore Law firm' at the European Hedge Fund Services Awards.

Jonathan Rigby, Managing Partner of Mourant Ozannes, said: "We are passionate about our work and always strive to have the highest performing teams delivering the best client experience, so we are very proud to receive this recognition from such a respected publication."
