About Us

The Garfield-Bennett Group grew from the establishment in 1995 of Garfield-Bennett English Solicitors (“GBES”) which specialised in advising on and setting up offshore company and trust structures as well as the provision of legal advice and other associated services.

In 2004 Garfield-Bennett Trust Company (“GBTC”) was established to take over the administration of the company and trust services and GBTC became licensed by the Jersey Financial Services Commission.

As an independent, privately owned trust company our ethos is, as it was when we were first set up, to provide a quality, bespoke service which is tailored to each client’s particular needs. 

Strategic approach

We believe that taking a strategic approach is essential for both corporates and private individuals when deciding upon the best structures in which to place assets.

We work with our clients and their advisors (across numerous jurisdictions) to implement a range of structures. Having no institutional links, we are able to offer unfettered access to a network of the best banking, investment and other professional advisors. 

Jersey is situated outside the Euro zone and is under an hour’s journey by plane from London and other major European cities, in a self governing, politically stable jurisdiction. We are ideally placed to provide the very best independent services.
