From the HNW guide

Vistra is a well-established trusts and corporate services provider with a global presence. One source reports that it is a big name in Asia, saying: "They are huge in terms of size and reach and offer the full range of services: corporate, funds and private client."

Another interviewee comments on the firm's growth in this market, stating: "They have made a series of acquisitions that have made them more distinguished. If a client needs an independent trust company not connected to any bank, Vistra will fit in quite nicely. They have consolidated the businesses they have bought and are very visible. People have used them for a long time in Asia, so they are very visible in the market."
