As an estate planning lawyer in China, I am helping a Chinese client in setting up an offshore trust to ensure some secrecy and deferral of tax obligation on the part of the dividends paid to the shares that will be setttled into the trust.
The client is concerned with the reliability and reputation of the trust company that will be selected as trustee. So she is asking me about which are the best trust companies in the world.
As a lawyer most of time based in Shanghai, I have limited knowledge in this aspect. I have found out from the Internet a ranking table of best trust company published by the Eprivateclient. Is the Eprivateclient’s ranking credible?
Thanks for your recommendation and comments.
