A history of inspired success
Private Trust was founded in 1983 by a small group of experienced financial professionals. The founding partners recognized the need for a client-oriented trust company not owned by, or affiliated with any major bank or financial institution, that would provide independent and innovative solutions for clients from around the world. They also understood the value of establishing The Bahamas as its base of operations because of its political stability, absence of taxes, confidentiality laws and excellent business, banking and communication facilities.
Over the past three decades Private Trust has remained true to these guiding principles and has grown to be the largest independent trust company in The Bahamas, with more than $8 billion in assets currently under administration.
The company’s growth continues under the dynamic leadership of its executive management team and an experienced board of Directors, all of whom live in The Bahamas. The professional staff includes Chartered Accountants / CPAs, lawyers, trust advisors with the STEP qualification and advisors with the SEC Series 7 Securities qualification all dedicated to providing client orientated solutions in a professional, efficient and timely manner.
