Across Guernsey are our famous 'honesty boxes' where the island's residents sell home-grown produce. These unmanned roadside stalls are successful due to the honest nature of islanders. The same honest nature is seen in the island's trustees, whose character is beyond repute.

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.

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