The structure and benefits of private trust companies for family offices: a guide

29 Nov 2022

Proper structure and governance are needed for the success of any organisation, and family offices are no exception. As a global service provider and partner to family offices worldwide, we have seen the private trust company (PTC) emerging as among the most popular across the globe.

The PTC is a powerful legal framework for preserving and enhancing a family’s wealth, linking in family offices, streamlining governance, and optimising succession planning strategies.

But what exactly is a PTC, and how might it benefit your family office?

Together with the help of my colleagues from our key private wealth jurisdictions, we have produced a guide that explains the nature and benefits of a PTC, including why it is worth considering for your family office structure.
