The Lockdown Interviews: II talks to Sovereign Group’s chairman Howard Bilton

In this latest instalment of the Lockdown Interviews, International Investment’s Gary Robinson speaks to Howard Bilton, chairman of Gibraltar-headquartered Sovereign Group, one of the largest independent corporate and trust service providers in the world.

GR: How has covid-19 lockdown affected how you work generally?

HB: Not so much really. For several years now I have been working largely from home so for me there was little change in my personal working method. I found that working from home suited me very well as I start much earlier and get less interruptions and these days see only a few clients.

GR: Describe where have you been working during lockdown and how are you coping with more remote working, i.e. the work/life balance?

HB: I have an office at home so I have been working from there. In the first stages of lockdown it was not possible to play squash or tennis. I play both regularly. Instead I used the rowing machine which I bought some time ago but had sat there unmolested. In Hong Kong we were quite lucky that restaurants remained open throughout the worst of the virus so for me there was no real change to the work life balance and I could continue pretty much as normal.
