Ann Marie Jackson (20 years' service), Gina Connolly, Joyce Seymour and Lecia McLaughlin (15 years each) were presented with certificates at a recent thanksgiving lunch at SMP Partners' Cayman office, and also receive a cash bonus to mark the occasion.
Ann Marie and Lecia were with Royal Bank of Canada's trust, fund administration and custodian business in the Caribbean, which SMP acquired in May this year, with their tenure transferred. Gina and Joyce worked for Cayman National Trust, whose business was purchased by the SMP Partners Group in September this year, and their tenures were also transferred.
Headquartered in the Isle of Man, the independent SMP Partners Group is wholly owned by its management and is dedicated to providing first class services from its offices in the Isle of Man, Jersey, Switzerland, Hong Kong and the Caribbean.
CEO of the Caribbean Region, Stephen Turner, who is based in the Cayman office, said: 'Although the teams who joined us from Royal Bank of Canada have only been with the Group for a short time, we felt it was important that their dedication and expertise was recognised by transferring their tenure to SMP Partners. This recognition not only marks the long service from Ann Marie, Gina, Joyce and Lecia, but also the way they, and their colleagues, ensured a very smooth transition for RBC and CNT clients.'
