As Christmas and the end of the year fast approaches it’s a good time to reflect on what had been another exciting year for Boston.

This year we celebrated our 20th birthday and hosted a party in the Isle of Man which was attended by Chief Minister Alfred Cannan, prominent figures within the local business community, clients and friends of Boston. I’d like to thank everyone who has supported us over the last 20 years.

It has been great to get back to meeting in person this year and we have enjoyed travelling to events and meeting clients. Highlights included travelling to South Africa as part of the Isle of Man Indaba delegation, and attending the Monaco Yacht Show in September where we hosted our Annual Drinks Reception which was attended by over 100 people.

This year our CEO Katherine Ellis was recognised at the Isle of Man Awards for Excellence where she won Leader of The Year, an award which recognises leaders with integrity, decisiveness, fairness, enthusiasm, knowledge and endurance, a much deserved award.

Throughout the year we have continued to grow as a business and have welcomed new team members in both our Isle of Man and Malta offices. We are now 52 of people across both offices. We also celebrated a number of promotions and long service milestones during the year, with several staff being recognised for 10 and 20 years continuous service.

2022 saw a new finance partner, Horizon Capital take a stake in the business which will support our business as we continue to grow. Looking forward to next year we are planning to growth both organically and through strategic acquisitions which will expand our jurisdictional reach.

None of the success we have enjoyed this year, or over the last 20 years would have been possible without our amazing team and I’d like to thank them for all their hard work and continued commitment to Boston. It is down to a shared enthusiasm and dedication to providing the best services for our clients that we have come this far and those are key values we will take forward into the future.

I’d also like to wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
