Help and Support Where You Need It
Our business has its origins in Europe, founded in London in 1978 and now with eleven offices across the region.
Our long history in Europe, with over half of our offices in the region established by the mid-1990s, means that we have a deep understanding of the jurisdictions in which we operate, whether onshore EU and the UK, or offshore structuring centres. We put down deep roots where we operate, developing stable and accomplished teams that can offer our clients the benefits of their experience and continuity of relationship and service.
Whether offshore family trusts, real estate holding structures, EU-domiciled funds, or the smooth running of a private yacht, our team has significant practical experience and expertise. The majority of our fiduciary and fund services staff either possess or are studying for a professional qualification, whether it be in the field of accounting, law, trusts or governance. We perform all our services in-house to maintain strict quality control.
Provision of personalized, top class client service is at the core of our identity and underpins our ability to build long-lasting relationships. We operate an integrated private client team across the Crown Dependencies, UK and Switzerland, with our EU funds hub located in Malta, our marine services led from Guernsey and access to our global range of corporate services coordinated from Cyprus.
With a multicultural team of almost 400 staff speaking 25 languages in 14 locations across the region, we are well placed to give our clients the support where they need it. Whether providing support in one or multiple locations, our team offers a fully integrated service across the region and also coordinates any required services delivered across our global footprint of over 30 offices.
Our capabilities, specialist expertise and commitment to service excellence have been recognised in multiple private client and alternative investment funds industry awards and rankings.
Most recently, our European funds team has been named Best Administrator at the Hedgeweek European Digital Awards.
Our Cyprus office has been repeatedly ranked as a leading trust company in the jurisdiction by the Chambers & Partners High Net Worth Guide.
