Innovation supported by traditional values

We can trace our roots back to late 19th century Jersey, when lawyer Cyril Hawksford first began practising. Since the 1970s, a dynamic offshore trust business has developed and, in conjunction with the innovation that has seen us flourish, we retain a firm focus on the traditional values that guided Cyril Hawksford and his successors. It is for this reason that we chose Hawksford as our name following the management buyout of Rathbone Trust Company Jersey Limited in October 2008.

The buyout of our business has given us the independence we view as crucial to delivering the best solutions for our clients and positions us to use our expertise in professional trust services to its full potential. It also allows us to develop our international reach and to respond to the growing need for sophisticated multi-jurisdiction offshore structures.

We work very closely with our strategic partner, Dunedin to develop and grow international business. The management buyout team own the majority shareholding. As a company we are investing in our people and systems to ensure the strength of the business for the future and the highest levels of service to our clients.
