Crestbridge Family Office Services Client Director Danielle Cottignies has been identified as a future leader within the UK and offshore private client industry.
Jersey-based Danielle (pictured) is included in the ePrivateClient NextGen Leaders List, published this week. The list recognises and celebrates rising stars from across the private client landscape in the UK and Crown Dependencies. In compiling the list, the publication considered a number of factors, including individual achievements over the past year, and career progression.
Danielle was also featured in the publication’s Channel Islands NextGen Leaders List earlier this year.
Danielle has 13 years’ multi-jurisdictional experience in the finance industry. She provides oversight to a large team administering structures that hold investment portfolios, financing vehicles and commercial and residential real estate for high profile international families, many of them requiring Islamic Finance expertise.
Danielle holds the ICSA Diploma in Offshore Finance and Administration, the CISI Islamic Finance Qualification, the STEP Advising Family Businesses and Family Business Governance Qualification, the CISI Sustainable and Responsible Investment Certificate and is working towards the TGCI Diploma in ESG.
The latest recognition maintains a successful twelve months for Danielle, who was also named Winner of the ‘Rising Star Under 40’ Award at the 2022 WealthBriefing European Awards and was a Gold Winner of the 2022 Citywealth Powerwomen Awards in the ‘Woman of the Year – Rising Star’ category.
Paul Hunter, Managing Director of Crestbridge Family Office Services, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, said: “Crestbridge Family Office Services can demonstrate a strong track record in both attracting and supporting talent, and Danielle is a perfect reflection of that. Although she is recognised as a NextGen Leader, she is already supporting highly complex family office requirements and, as a senior member of our team, is contributing to our shared success and driving our growth strategy. I’m delighted for Danielle, whose approach and commitment mirror our collective values.”
