Sterling Trust is a private firm that prides itself in long term relationships with
clients and their families. The stability of our team has allowed our clients to benefit
from a high level of service continuity. This has resulted in a particularly loyal
client base, where most clients have used Sterling for more than twenty years
and some for as long as forty years. We are regulated by the Bermuda Monetary
Authority as a licensed Bermuda financial institution and Trust company. As such,
Sterling is required to maintain a minimum capital and our professional staff
ensures that settlors and beneficiaries of trusts are assured of absolute security,
confidentiality and services at the highest standards in the establishment, operation
and administration of trusts.
Our services include:
Personal Trust Services
Our team can assist in meeting stakeholder goals of wealth preservation, asset
protection, tax efficiency or family business succession planning. We also provide
the service of the incorporation and administration of private trust companies
where these meet the requirements of stakeholders.
Corporate Trust Services
We provide a wide range of corporate trust services, including the creation and
administration of purpose trusts and other special purpose vehicles, pension trusts,
Health and Welfare Trusts and charitable trusts.
Services of incorporating and administering companies in Bermuda or other
jurisdictions for the purpose of holding trust assets are provided by our wholly
owned subsidiary, Sterling Management Limited. Trust accounting is undertaken
by chartered accountants and trust accounts are prepared and produced annually
or more frequently if required. Banking is conducted on behalf of trusts, including
opening and operating accounts with banks throughout the world and operating and
transacting on these accounts.
