KEY FEATURES TRUSTS

There is no mandatory requirement to register the trust with the regulatory authorities in Mauritius, which protects the confidentiality of clients. However, a trustee may register the trust with the regulatory authorities to receive what is called a “date certaine”, i.e. registering when the trust was created. Only the trust deed is required and is registered with the Registrar General. Private Trust Company (PTC) is permissible in Mauritius for high net worth individual (HNWI). The PTC, which can either be set up as Category 1 Global Business Licence (GBC1) or a Category 2 Global Business Licence (GBC2),shall act as trustee of the assets of HNWI that would be settled in a trust or a number of trusts.

Being in the Financial Services for over 40 years, I have seen a trend where Big Institutions are more concerned about profits than their valued clients. It is therefore pleasing to evidence outstanding service from Sphere. I am most impressed with your service.
