We are delighted to announce that William Houseley has been appointed to the Board of our two Zurich companies, Rawlinson & Hunter (Zurich) AG, and its FINMA authorised subsidiary, R&H Trust Co. (Zurich) AG, with effect from 1 April 2018.

William graduated with a law degree and then completed a Master of Laws at London University. He then worked as an academic, before being called to the Bar at Lincoln’s Inn in 1999. He subsequently worked as in-house legal counsel for well-known companies, in roles connected to the management of their intellectual property. He moved to Switzerland in 2006 and later that year joined HSBC Guyerzeller Trust Company AG as a Trust Officer, progressing to be a Team Head. When the HSBC trust business was closed in Zurich at the end of 2015, William briefly joined a competitor in Zurich as a Trust Administration Team Head, before joining Rawlinson & Hunter on 1 March 2017. Since then William has taken responsibility for a number of significant clients of the Zurich office, and has been very valuable in bringing his wider legal experience to the trusteeships and other fiduciary services provided from the Zurich office.
