Use of Jersey companies: Confidentiality of ownership of valuable assets.
Jersey companies are used by high net worth individuals throughout the world to own valuable assets in a secure, confidential and tax-neutral environment.
This is a perfectly legitimate activity. In many countries the personal security of the investor and his or her family is at stake if it becomes public knowledge that such an individual owns valuable assets.
Jordans Trust Company can advise on the appropriate use of director, nominee shareholder and banking services in order to protect the confidentiality of vulnerable ultimate beneficial owners. We can also advise on IFRS issues which may require disclosure of ultimate controlling parties of investee companies in statutory accounts. We can advise on legitimate methods by which ownership and control of such shares may be structured to preserve confidentiality under IFRS.
