Private Wealth

Our Cayman Private Wealth team advises high net worth individuals, wealthy families and individuals, trustees, portfolio managers and family offices on establishing, administering and restructuring Cayman fund vehicles, purpose trusts and holding companies in the context of international tax planning advice and asset protection.

The Cayman Islands offers a wide variety of vehicles for use in sophisticated platforms through which international families can operate and manage their global business interests and affairs. We advise on the legal and requlatory aspects of these asset holding structures. Our advice covers the relative advantages and disadvantages of each form of Cayman vehicle, and the establishment and operation of offshore vehicles in accordance with the requirements of international tax advice. Our private wealth specialists also advise on the establishment of investment funds across a broad range of structures, including private equity, real estate, infrastructure and hedge funds.

We also carry out legal due diligence reviews on existing Cayman structures and provide legal opinions and transactional advice on underlying documentation governing Cayman entities.

The professionals in our Cayman Private Wealth team have established business connections with a wide range of service providers, including those offering independent directorship services, professional trustee and protector services, administration and compliance services and custody and banking services. We work alongside our trusted contacts to offer our private wealth clients an integrated service as required.
