Trident Trust opened its Singapore office in 2010, and soon after this acquired Commerzbank’s trust and fund administration business in Singapore, which had been in operation since 1996. Now numbering close to 30 staff, our team in Singapore was named Best Independent Trust or Fiduciary Company at the WealthBriefingAsia Singapore Awards in 2014, 2015 and 2016. The office is licensed and regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, and holds a Singapore Trust Business Licence and a Capital Markets Services Licence for custody services. The team establishes, administers and acts as trustee for both Singapore and offshore trusts, provides a range of corporate secretarial, accounting and fiduciary services to both Singapore and offshore companies, and also provides fund administration services to a range of alternative investment funds. Our Singapore team also acts as a Client Liaison Office for the Group, assisting clients in accessing the Group's global services.
