Two members of staff at UBS Jersey are celebrating what their bosses describe as “outstanding” exam results.
Client Advisor Assistant John Pipon has achieved 1st Class Honours in the BSc (Hons) International Financial Services degree.
Trust Officer Frankie de la Cour has been awarded his STEP Diploma in International Trust Management with a Distinction.
The STEP Diploma is the global industry standard covering the essentials of international
trust principles and practice and is delivered in association with the Alliance Manchester Business School.
The 2-year BSc (Hons) International Financial Services degree is run by the Jersey International Business School and provides students with a broad understanding of international financial services. The degree is awarded by the University of Buckingham.
It includes an undergraduate employment programme that provides students with paid employment two days a week for the duration of their studies.
UBS Jersey has been supporting Mr Pipon through the undergraduate programme and he is now a full-time employee in the Private Clients team.
Mr Pipon also completed his CISI Investment Advice Diploma whilst studying for his
degree and is now pursuing a career with UBS in private wealth management.
Michael Clarke, Head of Private Clients at UBS Jersey, said: “We are delighted for both John and Frankie at the outstanding results that they have achieved. They are a credit to UBS and we will continue to support them as they move forward in their careers.”
“Frankie’s qualification has allowed UBS Trustees to task him with the administration of more complex trust structures. John’s qualification provides a sound academic platform and John joins our Private Clients team at a very exciting time as we continue to grow our local business and offer world-class wealth management solutions to Jersey residents.”
