Private Client Structures

Trusts and Foundations

Asset protection, succession planning and philanthropy are just three reasons to use wealth management structures.

Asset Holding and Investment Vehicles

Investment structures such as Protected Cell Companies or Family Investment Companies can hold a range of assets.

Family Office and Governance

We understand families and advise on family governance and the transfer of wealth from one generation to the next.

Client First

We set up, manage and administer a wide range of fiduciary structures, from trusts to complex family office arrangements. As a family-run, privately held company, we understand inter-generational dynamics and the role that good governance plays in keeping a steady ship. 

‘Client first’ is a mantra we live by. A voice you know on the phone, an adviser, aide and administrator all rolled into one. You get personal service backed up with the professional expertise of our whole team.

We’re the type of people who always want to know what’s around the next corner. We build relationships so we can anticipate and plan ahead for our clients, as well as responding quickly when opportunities arise.

Our can-do attitude is supported by technology chosen to make it easier for our clients to stay on top of their affairs. HFL collaborates with clients to develop bespoke solutions that work for them.
