At Saffery Trust, the value of your family lies far beyond your wealth. We work diligently to understand your individual and collective ambitions through our family office services.

Our distinctive independent structure allows us to do things differently. Whether providing a full family office service or working in partnership with your existing family or private office, our autonomy allows us to offer completely bespoke services to meet your family’s needs.

We do not shy away from the unique challenges family offices can present, including providing effective solutions when faced with contentious work. Your family will benefit not only from our expertise, but from that of our wider network of specialist service providers.

We have extensive experience and understanding of multi-cultural family offices and the implications on estate matters. This experience includes obtaining a blessing from the Grand Cayman Court for a momentous decision for the distribution of high-value and complex trust assets in accordance with Shari’a Law.

Our understanding of the complex nature of family dynamics, the diversity of motivating factors across generations, and the need for strategic input has earned us a seat at the family table as trusted advisers.
