Guernsey has long been acknowledged as one of the world’s leading and most reputable jurisdictions in which to locate trusts and other fiduciary structures. An offshore centre that continually adapts and innovates to meet the ever changing demands of clients, Guernsey is also ideally placed to provide an array of private office services to satisfy the needs of wealthy families with diversified interests.

Guernsey’s status as a robust yet extremely sophisticated finance centre has been maintained and enhanced through the years because of the exacting standards exercised by its local regulator, the Guernsey Financial Services Commission.

In order to obtain a fiduciary licence, Opus Private has had to satisfy stringent criteria which cover fundamental issues including:

  • Management and staff expertise
  • Compliance and training measures
  • Internal systems and procedures
  • Capital adequacy
  • Insurance cover
  • Independent management and control of client assets
