London, UK (PRWEB UK) 18 July 2012
On 18 June 2012, Private Client Practitioner’s Top 25 Trust Companies champagne reception attendees enjoyed Bonham’s British and Continental Pictures preview and stimulating conversation.
As part of Private Client Practitioner’s Top 25 series, the Top 25 Trust Companies aims to identify, recognise, introduce and promote the Top 25 Private Client Trust Companies, in the UK and UK offshore. The champagne reception, held at Bonhams in London, included guests from the leading UK and UK offshore trust companies, such as Bedell Group, Capita Fiduciary and Jersey Trust Company. These firms, and others, had been identified by Private Client Practitioner as being the leading trust companies offering private client advice.

Bonhams provided the catering, serving Corn Cups with Guacamole and Prawns, Sunblush Tomatoes with Goats Cheese and Basil Cream on Toasts, Parma Ham Wrapped Asparagus and Blinis with Smoked Salmon and Herb Cream Cheese Topping. The champagne was Louis Roederer Brut NV. Photographs were taken by Simon Hargrave.
