Guarantee Companies

Neglected & Overlooked?

Due to a low level of awareness of the rules applicable to them, guarantee companies are often neglected and overlooked when exercises are being undertaken to identify the most appropriate form of entity to act as the governance and control body for a proposal. Alongside companies limited by shares, foundations and private trust companies (PTCs),  guarantee companies should at least be given consideration because of the greater adaptability and privacy that a not-for-profit entity such as a guarantee company can offer.

How I can help

I have in depth  knowledge of the rules applicable to the setting up and use of guarantee companies in Jersey;  how they can be structured to act as PTCs with ownership of the company integrated and internalised within its executive board; and how they can operate as special purpose vehicles including as not-for-profits and private philanthropy funds.
