Why Hong Kong?
Hong Kong is one of the freest economies in the world, a global financial center with a low tax regime, a high-quality legal framework and deep professional expertise among other features. Hong Kong is a popular business choice for foreign investors who want to set up a local company and is also the best gateway for doing business in Mainland China.
A thorough modernisation of the trust legislation has greatly improved Hong Kong’s attractiveness and standing as a trust jurisdiction. In addition, Hong Kong is a hub for an expanding array of trust-related businesses such as corporate, tax, accounting and professional services.
Our Hong Kong office is a Registered Trust Company and a Licensed Trust or Company Service Provider (TSCP) with a highly qualified and committed team that will give you the support you need to set up your business in Hong Kong and to remain fully compliant at all times. Our team also has extensive experience with trusts, wealth planning and family office support and will help you to identify and put in place proper structures and saving strategies to ensure you can achieve what is most important for you.
