Fiduciary Services

Trusts, Foundations, Companies and Partnerships play a vitally important role in the lives of wealthy individuals, entrepreneurs and their families. Many Internationally mobile clients use a combination of these vehicles to administer, grow and protect their assets and wealth for future generations.


Within the Knox group of companies we have a regulated, award winning Trust & Corporate Services Provider whose considerable depth of expertise, experience and knowledge in the field of offshore fiduciary services is unrivalled. Such technical excellence enables them to create and manage structures bespoke to client requirements, thereby addressing their wealth protection, tax mitigation and estate planning needs simultaneously and seamlessly.

Their service is delivered within the Isle of Man’s protective regulatory and legislative framework and the fiduciary services specialist operates with the necessary licences issued by the Isle of Man Financial Services Authority.

A key aspect of the fiduciary service delivered, whether establishing a new bespoke structure or assuming responsibility for the on-going administration of a client’s existing affairs is the time and resource dedicated to establishing the specific needs of the client and forging a long term relationship built on understanding and trust.

In establishing such relationships, the day to day management of all structures is underpinned through a fiduciary duty of care and includes the relationships between trustees and their beneficiaries and company promoters and directors. Acting in the beneficiary’s best interests at all times is at the forefront of advice and guidance given.

Our fiduciary specialist has vast experience in acting for ultra high net worth clients allowing them to plan, structure and manage their affairs in the best possible fashion.
