Genesis Trust makes two senior appointments


Genesis Trust & Corporate Services has made two appointments. Marcus Parker and Dawn Howe both joined the team in January.

Roger Priaulx, CEO of Genesis, said: “We are delighted that both Marcus and Dawn have agreed to join our team at Genesis. Marcus will be heading up the trust department, whilst Dawn will be co-head of the fiduciary services department and providing additional in-house legal support.”

Paul Drake, CFO, added: “Marcus, a tax and trust lawyer, was one of the founding partners of a boutique private client law firm in London before moving to Cayman in 2013 and becoming a full time professional trustee in 2015. Marcus has been independently regarded as a leader in the private client industry for a number of years by Chambers and Partners, Citywealth and Who’s Who Legal and peers have described him as “an absolute pro and a pleasure to work with.

“Dawn was a partner in the investment funds group at Walkers in Cayman and having been advised by Dawn for several years, as outside legal counsel, we appreciate why she is so highly regarded both locally and internationally. She has an in-depth knowledge of Cayman structures, with a particular focus on investment funds, which, together with her regulatory expertise, will make her a valuable addition to our team.”

Parker confirmed: “I am delighted to have joined Genesis. I have admired them for many years for creating a highly respected and market leading trust company in Cayman, focussed on delivering the very highest levels of personal service. They have a superb team of accountants and lawyers on staff with considerable experience and expertise of acting as trustee. I look forward to further developing the trust offering for global wealthy families with a particular focus on “troubled” trusts, replacing incumbent trustees when trust litigation arises or there are other family disputes.”

Genesis was established in 1992 by the partners of KPMG in the Cayman Islands. In 1998 it became a fully licensed trust company regulated by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority, which allowed Genesis to offer a comprehensive range of trust and corporate services to its clients.
