Ogier, a provider of offshore legal and fiduciary services, is launching a new personalised wealth planning service to ultra high net worth individuals and family businesses.
Branded Ogier Private Wealth, it will provide a wide range of tailored solutions including the establishment and on-going administration of trusts and private trust companies, the creation and administration of employer-funded structures, real estate advice and the formation and administration of investment funds - particularly in the area of private funds.
"We have seen an increasing number of individuals and families creating new structures, often involving a private trust company utilising a number of jurisdictions, either for succession planning purposes or for the receipt of contributions from their employers, as well as Eastern European and Middle Eastern clients investing into western markets, through real estate or fund vehicles," said Philip Norman (pictured), partner and head of private client administration at Ogier.
"A significant number of these clients are expressing a strong preference to work with an independent trust company and we believe Ogier Private Wealth fulfils that need."
Ogier is the only offshore firm that has a substantive presence in each of the four leading offshore centres: BVI, Cayman, Guernsey and Jersey.
