An Interview with Rebecca Bettany

What is your role at JTC Private Office?

I set up JTC Private Office 2 years ago and put together the proposition. It exists to meet the desire for clients today to family offices to professionalise and formalise their affairs in recognition of increased transparency, regulation and greater wealth levels. We allow families to demonstrate the same levels of corporate governance as their listed counterparts. On a more personal level, we provide a single point of contact to each client which frees up their time so they can focus on running their business, their philanthropic pursuits or taking their kids to the cinema - whatever is most important to them at that moment. The Private Office team is now global and I focus on families with some sort of link to the UK or Channel Islands.

What do you love most about your role?

I love the variety that this job entails. No 2 families can ever be the same. I love getting to know our clients and the challenge of putting together a fresh set of solutions for each of them as well as being proactive and anticipating future needs before they arise.

Why did you join PCD?

I worked with David Bell at Lombard Odier and have long known that he is the best networker on the planet - it is great to have the opportunity to be part of that.

At which PCD event will members see you next?

I will be attending events in Jersey and London, however my JTC colleagues will be attending almost all of the 2020 PCD events.

My top tip for networking is...

Enjoy it and realise that people go to networking events because they want to meet people so don't be afraid to say hello.

On a weekend, I am most likely found...

On the beach with my kids! I have twin boys who are 8 and a little girl who is 7. We moved to Jersey from London 4 years ago and love all the outdoor adventures on offer. Jersey is a fantastic place to work as well as call home.
