Trident Trust

Wealth Solutions & Planning

Company overview:

Established over 40 years ago and present in Asia for more than 25 years, Trident Trust is a leading provider of corporate, fiduciary and fund administration services, employing over 900 staff across a global footprint that spans Africa, the Americas, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East. Privately owned and independent, the Group provides its services to leading financial institutions, professional advisors, asset managers, family offices and international businesses, who rely on our worldwide presence, local knowledge and our commitment to reliability, responsiveness, attention to detail and personal service.

Our Group offers one of the highest levels of professional qualification in the industry, with the average tenure of our senior executives exceeding 15 years. We have a long track record of working with professional advisors to business owners and high net worth families around the world to establish and administer structures that help preserve wealth from generation to generation, assist in orderly succession planning, and guard against political and economic uncertainty. The underlying assets of the trusts we administer include investment and operating companies, bank and brokerage accounts, properties, aircraft and luxury yachts.

Trident opened its first Asian office in Hong Kong in 1992 and in recognition of its growing importance in the international trust arena it established its Singapore office in 2010. Our Hong Kong and Singapore offices have both grown to over 50 staff.

In 2019, we significantly expanded our fund services capabilities in Asia to cater for the increased demand for independent fund administration from clients across Asia. The expansion of our team in both Hong Kong and Singapore allows us to enhance the service we are able to provide to clients in both China/North Asia and South-East Asia. We have also widened the range of company secretarial services we provide to businesses listed or intending to list on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong, providing pre-IPO company secretarial services and a full range of secretarial services for Hong Kong-listed entities.
