Welcome to
Trust Corporation International

Trust Corporation International has firmly established itself over the past 16 years as one of Guernsey’s leading independent fiduciary and corporate service providers. Characterised by independence and professionalism, the in-house technical expertise, director-led ethos and low director-to-staff ratio sets us apart. Our team has earned a reputation for administering complex and high-value structures which tend to sit outside the traditional comfort zone of many offshore fiduciaries.

We're meticulous
in what we do

Our objective is to be the "best in class" in each of our practice areas. We offer a carefully considered service, based upon proven experience and our professional backgrounds. We provide our clients, their advisers and family offices with exceptional service and believe that earning and maintaining trust is paramount.
