About Wealth Solutions

EFG Wealth Solutions is a specialist wealth structuring team at the heart of EFG’s private banking service. We specialise in the efficient structuring, protection and transferral of wealth.

Our teams of experienced professionals operate in various locations, including Jersey, Luxembourg, Miami, Cayman Islands, The Bahamas and Singapore. Working alongside you, your Client Relationship Officer and any tax or legal professionals, they craft bespoke solutions to protect your assets and facilitate the efficient transfer of wealth between generations.

Our wealth planners make full use of a range of structures – including trusts, foundations and companies - as well as tax-efficient wrappers. Our structures may hold a variety of asset classes including cash and quoted investments, shares in private companies, real-estate, artwork, yachts and aircraft. We can also hold intangible assets such as intellectual property and image rights. In addition, we have an in-house trust capability that encompasses major jurisdictions. In certain circumstances, we will also draw on a network of external specialists.

EFG Wealth Solutions embraces jurisdictional and product diversity, and the scope of our business ranges from holding structures to complex multi-structural family arrangements. However, we are always clear that our recommended wealth structuring solution must fit with your life, and be flexible enough to accommodate your changing circumstances.


What we offer

Our fiduciary specialists make use of a wide range of legitimate wealth planning tools to structure assets. These fall into three main categories: trusts, companies and foundations. These are described below.

We also offer innovative solutions through our fund services team as alternatives to the wealth planning structures described above.


Trusts

Trusts can be used for a variety of purposes, including asset protection, preservation of family wealth, tax / pension planning, protection of family businesses and charitable purposes.

We offer the creation, management and administration of a full array of trust types. These include:

  • Discretionary.
  • Unit.
  • Fixed interest.
  • Charitable.
  • Asset protection.
  • Reserved power.
  • Private trust companies.
  • Purpose trusts.
  • STAR trusts.

We have access to trust structures originating in all major offshore jurisdictions. The one chosen will vary depending on which is most suited to the needs of our clients.

Companies

We offer a range of company structures, including:

  • Limited liability.
  • Guarantee.
  • Protected cell company.
  • Incorporated cell company.
  • No par value.

EFG Wealth Solutions provides the directors, officers and company secretary for the company to ensure management and control is retained offshore.

In addition, we maintain full records, books and accounts and ensure that meetings of the board of directors are held and recorded.

Private foundations

A foundation is a tailored hybrid between a trust and a company. There are many similarities, but the key difference to a trust is that a foundation is a separate legal entity in its own right, whereas a trust functions through its trustee.

Many jurisdictions, including Jersey, The Bahamas and Panama have enacted specific foundations legislation.

The foundation, run by a nominated council, holds assets in its own name to fulfil the purpose stated in its charter and regulations.

EFG Wealth Solutions provides the regulated entity council member, together with management, administration and accounting services.
