Collas Crill Trust, a leading niche provider of Channel Islands-based fiduciary services, is celebrating a quarter century of providing tailored fiduciary solutions to private clients and institutions across the globe.
Over the past 25 years Collas Crill Trust has established itself as an innovative and service driven trust company, and was a finalist in the “Trust Company of the Year” category at the 2013 WealthBriefing European Private Client Awards and shortlisted for the 2014 “Guernsey Trust Company of the Year” Citywealth International Financial Centre Awards.
“I am proud to celebrate this milestone as it represents our resilience in an ever changing and competitive market,” said Matt Litten, managing director.
“I credit this achievement to our independence, our ability to offer bespoke fiduciary structures and most importantly, the excellent service levels we provide to our clients, supported by the stability of our trust administration personnel. We also have the advantage of being able to draw on first-class legal advice from our parent law firm, Collas Crill, across all areas of offshore law – including the establishment of newer structures such as Guernsey Foundations, uses for Guernsey Image Rights, and navigating the ever-changing legal and regulatory challenges in today’s environment.”
Looking forward, Collas Crill Trust will continue to promote its services to high-net worth clients and their advisors worldwide, who seek bespoke solutions for succession planning and asset protection. The trust company has recently experienced an increased focus on family governance to ensure wealth is successfully transitioned between generations, as well as interest in establishing structures to hold less conventional asset classes such as intellectual property and artwork.
Mr. Litten continued “There is certainly a niche for a law firm owned trustee in today’s market. Our strengths coupled with the broad range of fiduciary structures Guernsey now offers – and the island’s strong reputation as a finance centre – provides an excellent platform for us to continue providing tailored solutions to clients and developing our business worldwide.”
Collas Crill Trust was established in 1988 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Collas Crill. In 2012 it was rebranded from Guernsey Trust Company.
