Ormers are a traditional and popular Guernsey delicacy. As such the island has strict regulations in place to protect them.

This care is reflected in our fiduciary sector which ensures the interests of beneficiaries are well protected with our robust legislative and regulatory framework.

Private client services

Guernsey providers have the depth of technical expertise to identify and create the optimum solution for their client’s needs, whether that be asset protection, estate or succession planning.

A broad range of vehicles are available to practitioners which allow them to support personal, family, commercial and charitable interests.

These range from offshore trusts and underlying company structures for UK families, to high value and more complex structures involving trusts, companies, limited partnerships and foundations for international high net worth families.

A trust is the name given to the arrangement that allows a third party, or trustee, to hold assets on behalf of one or more beneficiaries or a charitable cause. Trusts are used for a broad range of purposes, including but not limited to:

  • Estate planning purposes
  • Charitable or non-charitable purposes
  • Holding the assets of a pension scheme
  • Company restructuring
