Administering over 150 employee incentive schemes on behalf of a broad spectrum of businesses, we provide a highly bespoke service to clients requiring employment services, acting as both Trustee and Administrator. Our clients are diverse, ranging from small businesses to listed multinational public companies across a range of sectors including telecoms, facilities management, retail, internet technology and transport. 

We know that when your business requires a special purpose vehicle you need a dependable, knowledgeable service provider.  With many years of experience across different jurisdictions, varied asset classes and a wide array of vehicles, we can offer you the solutions you need.

All assets are registered in the name of a Kleinwort Benson nominee company and held in clearly designated accounts to ensure proper segregation. We maintain accurate records and statement of all your investments and transactions.
