Trust Companies — British Virgin Islands

Nerine Trust Company (BVI) Ltd

From the HNW guide

This independent trust company was founded in Guernsey in 1997, expanding into the BVI in the following year. Since then, the firm has opened offices in Geneva, Hong Kong, and India. The firm's clients include entrepreneurs and wealthy families wishing to pass wealth down to the next generation. The team deals with standard discretionary BVI trusts as well as VISTA trusts, and has strong experience in business succession in the Far East.

The BVI office is headed by Jonathan Bailey. A market insider observes: "Jonathan Bailey is a very good quality private client lawyer, and it's advantageous to have a head of the trust company as an ex-lawyer."

Trident Trust Company (BVI) Ltd

From the HNW guide

A well-established trust company with 34 offices in 24 jurisdictions, Trident Trust opened its BVI office in 1986. Since then it has created not only a global footprint but also a prominent presence in the Caribbean, with offices in the Cayman Islands, Barbados, Bahamas and the US Virgin Islands.

The bulk of the firm's work is company formation, and they also provide director services, nominee shareholder services and trustee services. The international nature of the client base requires a great deal of cross-border work, with many clients coming from South America, Asia and Eastern Europe.
