Trident Trust Scores Double Asia Award Win in 2021
We are delighted that our teams in Hong Kong and Singapore have won two prestigious awards for their fiduciary services. On 17 June, WealthBriefingAsia, the leading news service for professionals in the Asian wealth management and private banking industries, named Trident Hong Kong “Best Independent Trust or Fiduciary Company” in the Greater China region and awarded Trident Singapore the same accolade for the South-East Asia region.
The double win is a remarkable achievement, extending a track record that can only be described as dominant. Trident Singapore has now been named “Best Independent Trust or Fiduciary Company – South-East Asia” at the awards seven times in eight years and this is the first time that the same company has triumphed in both categories.
This is a fantastic achievement and recognition from industry experts of the strong business our team has helped to build over the last few years. Each and every one of our staff has played a key role in helping to secure this award and should feel very proud.

Now in their ninth year, the WealthBriefingAsia Awards celebrate the expertise, achievements and innovation of companies across the wealth management sector in Asia. The ‘Best Independent Trust or Fiduciary Company’ category is particularly highly contested, with a small group of finalists and commended submissions chosen from a large pool of entrants before an ultimate winner is selected by the judges. It is this rigorous process of peer and industry assessment that makes the WealthBriefingAsia awards so highly prized.
In naming both our Asian offices, Hong Kong and Singapore “Best Independent Trust or Fiduciary Company” 2021, the judges recognised Trident Trust Group’s position as a leading independent fiduciary services provider in Asia.
“Trident’s full suite of offerings and much larger scale are important considerations for UHNW families with sizeable and complex needs,” said one of the judges of our win in the South-East Asia Independent Trust or Fiduciary category. “As well as their global reach and long-standing experience servicing clients in multiple jurisdictions,” another judge added.
“The sheer depth and breadth of their services, the impressive growth, their footprint globally and locally, and lastly the impressive testimonials made me choose Trident,” commented one of the judges. “I was Impressed by their ability to accept a wide spectrum of structures from PTC, pre-IPO planning to tailored made trust structures, their growth in the business and their international client base,” another judge mentioned.
We can only win these awards when everybody across the office pulls together for the good of our clients and the business as a whole, and 2020 was probably the greatest test of leadership and team spirit that any of us has ever encountered. Leaders appeared all over the office, taking ownership of the tasks handed down by government and reorganising the way we ran the office, almost on a weekly basis.

Key to winning the awards were the testimonials from numerous clients:
"Having worked with Trident Trust on a number of private client matters, we found the team to be proactive and knowledgeable. Our international clientele is well served by their extensive and international offering when it comes to trust and fiduciary services."
“We have had the pleasure of working with Trident Trust over the past few years and our experiences have been consistently positive. The team at Trident Trust is professional, reliable and responsive. Most importantly, they are sensitive to and able to meet the needs of the clients taking into account regulatory requirements and good governance and practices.”
