SG Kleinwort Hambros Trust Company (CI) Limited

Kleinwort Hambros has more than 200 years of experience helping individuals, families, entrepreneurs, trusts and charities to manage their wealth. From expert wealth planning advice and investment strategies to specialist lending products, we provide the personal approach clients would expect from a modern and responsible private bank.

When assets and business interests are complex, valuable or perhaps spread across different countries, wealth is exposed to a variety of hidden risks. The impact of different legal, regulatory and tax environments can have unintended consequences. The purpose of wealth can be viewed differently, according to individual values, lifestyle and experiences, as well as legacy requirements. Planning should be a priority whether focused on building and preserving wealth, maintaining a lifestyle or finding ways to contribute positively to society and the environment for many years into the future.

By organising and structuring wealth in the right ways, we ensure a seamless wealth transition to current and future generations, creating a sustainable financial or societal legacy.
