The list was compiled by Private Client Practitioner, the leading publication for private client professionals in the UK, Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Man in the private client sector. Nominees, working in areas such as law, wealth management and accountancy, were judged on their achievements in their careers.
Alistair Morris, chief executive of Pagan Osborne, said:
“Fiona is a real asset to Pagan Osborne and our clients. Being named in this prominent publication is recognition of her great knowledge, talent and skill and reaffirms her efforts and the importance she places on exceptional client service and delivery.

“I really enjoy the work that I do assisting clients to record their wishes to protect their family and structure their estates as tax efficiently as possible. I am very grateful for the opportunities I have had during my career so far. It is a great honour to be named as the only Scottish practitioner in the Top 35 under 35.”
