Trust administration​

We know that administering trusts, companies and other structures is a significant undertaking that may last generations. HSBC Private Banking has the expertise and administrative capabilities you need to protect and grow your wealth, helping you achieve lasting peace of mind.

Why consider trust and fiduciary services?

Trusts, foundations and other wealth structures help manage complex family wealth scenarios. They help to protect your family business and manage your wealth privately and independently, whilst providing continuity, preserving capital and helping family members enjoy financial benefits across generations.

Our trusts and other solutions are designed to suit your particular needs and ambitions, giving you a global structure for managing your wealth.

Choosing a trustee

Determining who will administer your structure is as important as your succession plan and the decision to create the structure itself. Trustees ultimately accept personal responsibility and legal liability for the financial welfare of the trust fund, so selecting a responsible trustee to protect, manage and distribute the assets is a key decision that will have lasting implications.

It is essential to have a trustee with professional legal knowledge and financial expertise, as the set up may involve generations of work, detailed record-keeping and co-ordination with lawyers, accountants and other advisers. Trusts and other structures involve complex management, in addition to often challenging financial and investment decisions.

Basics of a trust

A trust is a private arrangement whereby you, as the settlor, transfer the legal ownership of your assets (which then become the trust assets) to the trustee, who manages and holds the assets for the benefit of the beneficiaries. The beneficiaries may include you and your family.
