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.
