Jersey's Enhance names former Guernsey chief minister Trott a NED

The Enhance Group, a Jersey-based wealth consultancy with outposts in such overseas markets as the Cayman Islands and Singapore, has named a former Guernsey chief minister, Lyndon Trott, a non-executive director.

Trott, pictured, who is currently chairman of Guernsey Finance, is also a former treasury minister of Guernsey. He served as chief minister from 2008 to 2012.

Trott currently holds independent non-executive directorships with several organisations, including “a leading Guernsey-based fiduciary company, and the world’s largest independent private equity and real estate fund administrator, among others”, according to a statement on Enhance’s website. The statement doesn’t reveal these companies’ names.

In that statement, Trott noted that Enhance was an example of a local business that has built its success on taking advantage of the “advances in technology” that are “changing the shape of finance as we know it”.

“I look forward to helping them reach their goals and objectives, while developing my own insights as the fintech industry continues to evolve in the Channel Islands,” he added.

Enhance is headed by James Painter, its chief executive. Last year the firm opened its Singapore office, which is headed by company co-founder Richard Sayers.
