Aberdeen Standard Capital supports rising tennis ace Stuart Parker

20 December 2019

Aberdeen Standard Capital is pleased to support Jersey’s own, Stuart Parker, in his quest to become a top-100 tennis player. This is exciting for both Stuart and Aberdeen Standard Capital as we look to support locally talented individuals in their pursuit of their targets and hopefully more. We will be following Stuart’s progress with interest as he starts to climb the world rankings and becomes the next big thing in British tennis.

Stuart – who is currently ranked 878 in the world – recently moved to an academy in the south of France where he will train with Swedish champion and former world number four, Thomas Enqvist. Under Enqvist’s tutelage, Stuart hopes to rise rapidly through the world rankings.

Supporting local causes is part of the ethos of ASC and we have sponsored a number of promising sports people in recent years. When our Jersey office brought Stuart to our attention, we were happy to support his aspirations.

Playing on the International Tennis Federation tour this year, Stuart has reached two singles semi-finals. In July 2019, he also won both the singles and doubles titles at the Gibraltar Island Games.

Stuart Parker commented:

“I am excited about the future after deciding to move to France and work with Thomas Enqvist, someone who has so much first-hand experience at the top of the game. This is a huge move for me personally and the support from Aberdeen Standard Capital helps to make this possible. I can’t wait to see what the future holds and I’m grateful for the opportunity.”

Charles Insley, Head of International at Aberdeen Standard Capital said:

“Aberdeen Standard Capital is pleased to support Jersey local, Stuart Parker, in his quest to become a top-100 tennis player. We will be following his progress with interest as he hopefully starts to climb the world rankings and becomes the next big thing in British tennis.”
