Basel will rebrand by the end of the year, positioning First Names Group as one of the world’s largest offshore trust, funds and corporate service providers with over 400 employees operating out of seven strategic locations.

Morgan Jubb, recently appointed CEO of First Names Group comments; “First Names Group has ambitious plans for growth. We are united behind our brand and culture and we will continue to develop and nurture it whilst evolving the business into a truly global operation.”

First Names Group was previously the international division of IFG Group.  The firm has offices in the Isle of Man, Jersey, Cyprus, Switzerland, Ireland, UK, the British Virgin Islands and Japan.
