Jordans Group enters new era of global growth as it completes its rebrand to Vistra
Jordans Group announced recently that it has entered a new era of global growth following completion of its rebranding to Vistra.
Established for over 150 years, the Group brings together a unique team of lawyers, accountants, trust managers, data specialists and company formation agents. It was acquired by Vistra – one of the world’s leading global corporate service, trust and fund administration providers – in December 2016.
Between them, the four companies in the Group – Jordans Limited, Jordans (Scotland) Limited, Jordans Corporate Law Limited and Jordans Trust Company – employ over 140 personnel between their offices in Bristol, London and Edinburgh.
“We have always provided our clients with opportunities to do business throughout the world,” said Jason Burgoyne, Managing Director, Corporate Services at Vistra. “But being part of a global group with presence in 46 jurisdictions has opened up exciting new opportunities for our clients over the last two years. This has helped us to win new business and enhanced the service we offer to existing clients. Given the age and reputation of our business, it has also provided Vistra with a stronger presence in the UK. We have some great growth plans; a key part of those plans is reassuring our longstanding clients that they will continue to receive the very personal service that makes our approach so unique.”
“The completion of the rebrand confirms we are now fully embedded into an integrated, full-service global business. At a time when many UK businesses are looking further afield because of the changes Brexit may bring, we are now ideally positioned to help UK companies successfully establish their operations overseas, as well as enable international companies who wish to establish a presence in the UK.”
In 2017, Jordans Bristol staff moved into 15,000 sq ft of newly refurbished space at 10 Temple Back - a move designed to allow for considerable expansion in the years ahead. Since then they have focused on expanding their core activities – including their legal advisory services through their integrated law firm, renamed Vistra Corporate Law.
Added Debbie Farman, who leads the law firm, “We’ve been on a sharp growth curve over the last couple of years, adding new sector specialists to our team and broadening our offering.”
“I anticipate that curve to continue locally and globally following the rebrand to Vistra. We have set ourselves ambitious growth targets over the next few years. We have a great client base, and great people. This is a truly exciting time for the business.”
Commenting on the rebranding completion, Justin Damer, Divisional Managing Director of Corporate and Private Clients at Vistra, said, “We are delighted that Jordans Group is now a fully integrated part of the Vistra family. This further strengthens our presence in the UK and expands our service offerings in Europe to include business information services as well as giving us one of the strongest footprints in the UK for company formations and corporate services. With the inclusion of legal services through Vistra Corporate Law, we now have a platform to grow our legal advisory offering.”
“We look forward to leveraging our local expertise and Vistra’s global network to create further opportunities in the region and beyond for our clients and employees.”
