Regulation of Trust Company Business

Trust professionals in the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey are required to work in the context of robust regulatory environments.

Our leading lawyers support you by providing up-to-date advice and direction on compliance and regulation matters. We advise on all aspects of industry regulation and compliance, including anti-money laundering (AML), regulatory processes, authorisation and registration, investigations and employment matters. We can also provide advice on and thorough due diligence services for fiduciary businesses embarking on merger or acquisition activities. 

We can advise you in both a non-contentious and contentious capacity, helping you to mitigate risk in your business by raising awareness of the requirements of local laws and regulatory codes of conduct.

Where regulatory failings are discovered, our experts provide clear and practical advice on establishing a remediation program, handling communications with the regulator and adjusting policies and procedures to minimise the impact on your staff and business, to limit the role of any external consultants and to keep costs contained.
