Independent trust service provider Entrust has launched in Jersey.
The firm will offer trust and corporate services, including trustee, protector or adviser, beneficiary education and dispute resolution.
It is led by managing director Emma Roberts, who held a similar role at Rotschild Trust Guernsey and was a senior manager at Credit Suisse Trust.
Laura Kyle, Scott Cairney, Mark Godel, Clive Le Marquand, Tim Zeale and Debbie Griffey make up the rest of the management team.
Roberts said: “With many trust companies being acquired by larger competitors or by private equity, we have identified a wish amongst private clients and their advisers to work with independently owned fiduciaries.
“As a fully independent company, we are able to do things differently, providing our clients with a bespoke, director led and efficient offering. The key to delivering the highest quality service is in the team and I am very pleased to have been joined by Laura Kyle and Scott Cairney, both seasoned trust professionals.
“We have embraced cutting edge tools and are fully committed to transparency on pricing. Being independent, we are agile and responsive to changing regulations and financial backdrops, in a world that is changing faster than ever before. We are also at liberty to work with whomever is best suited to our clients’ needs.
‘This is a hugely exciting time for us and we are looking forward to developing our offering further, whilst continuing to deliver exceptional levels of service to our client.”
