We offer clients the opportunity to establish a trust company business in Jersey or Cayman Islands, without the extra hassle or expense needed to equip and maintain its own office and staff.

Managed trust companies (MTCs) are trust businesses formed by Hawksford on behalf of our clients. The MTC will often take on the name of the parent (client) company and thereby open the company up to new markets under an established name. At the same time, they benefit from Hawksford's established relationships with the regulating bodies in each of our jurisdictions, our robust approach to offshore governance, and our experience of establishing and managing private trusts.

Why might you need the services of a managed trust company?

  • To establish an offshore presence in either Jersey or Cayman Islands
  • To extend product offering to a new client base and/or new market without incurring the fixed costs of equipping a fully resourced office or establishing a standalone trust company
  • Where there is a preference to retain a close link between intermediary and client
  • As an intermediary, to ensure your clients are receiving accurate and up to date advice from a team of discreet and experienced trust and company professionals

Our services include:

  • Application for registration of the managed trust company with the JFSC (Jersey) or CIMA (Cayman Islands) Corporate trustee administration services
  • Company secretarial support
  • Registered office address
  • Trust, company and foundations administration
  • Support with specific transactions
