Sovereign Trust (Channel Islands) Limited
Sovereign Trust (Channel Islands) Limited, licensed by the Guernsey Financial Services Commission, was established in Guernsey in 2010 and offers trust services and pension schemes to individuals, expatriates, entrepreneurs, freelance consultants, private investors or wealthy persons and their families.
The company is part of the international Sovereign Group, one of the world's leading financial services groups, which has 24 offices across Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East.
Sovereign's core business is setting up and managing pensions, companies, trusts and other structures such as foundations to meet the specific personal or business needs of its clients. Typically, these needs would include wealth protection, foreign property ownership, company formation, corporate services and the facilitation of cross-border business.
The Guernsey office specialises in International Retirement Plans and Qualifying Non-UK Pension Schemes (QNUPS) and has exclusive use of an International Financial Adviser Support (IFAS) programme - a unique technical support programme providing a one-stop shop for information on international pensions.
Pension plans are established so that the underlying investments may not be subject to tax; with careful planning the pension fund can therefore be used by the member during their lifetime and any unused assets within the scheme at the time of death can then be passed on to the member's estate or to named beneficiaries.
