At Saffery Trust, our heritage means something.
Since our founding in 1855 Saffery Trust has been constantly developing, growing its skills, its scope and its exceptional team. Over generations we’ve been at the forefront of adaptability and change. To the world and our circumstance, to clients and their needs, we have underpinned everything with a unifying expertise and wisdom. This is born of innovations that spring from challenges and a driving ambition to help support opportunities and enable success for our clients. In the moment, and over a lifetime.
With a century of delivering exceptional client service in the UK behind us, our first international office was opened in Guernsey in 1977. We became one of the largest independent service providers on the island and continue to be at the forefront of private client service.
Driven to be where our clients need us to be, we opened our first Swiss office in 2005 in Geneva, followed by the addition of our Zurich office in 2008.
With a continually growing Middle Eastern client base, we opened a representative office in the Dubai International Financial Centre. Our Dubai office provides a gateway to connect professionals and clients to our global network.
In 2020, we launched a Cayman offering to give our clients access to another jurisdiction with a great infrastructure, robust laws, and specialist advisors. We operated in Cayman for two years under a licensed trust company, before attaining our own license from the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority and opening a stand-alone office in 2022.
We have the freedom and agility to act in the moment, and the wisdom and experience to plan for the long-term.
With the perfect balance between a deep-rooted history and forward-thinking teams across all our offices, we draw on our experience while keeping up with industry progress. This has seen us at the forefront of supporting clients with digital assets, including cryptocurrency, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and decentralised autonomous organisations (DAOs).
We build connections with specialists around the world, without restriction, to deliver a first-class service.
When it comes to wealth, one size does not fit all. We tailor all our services to meet your needs and support you in reaching your goals.
We are global. Big enough to cope. Small enough to care.
