Noble Apex Trust Limited is a trust company registered under section 79 of the Trustee Ordinance. It also has a Trust or Company Service Provider license granted by the Companies Registry. We provide comprehensive and professional trustee services to our clients.
In simple terms, a trust is a fiduciary arrangement whereby assets are transferred from one person (Settlor) to another person or corporate body (Trustee) to hold for the benefit of specified third parties (Beneficiaries) which may be persons, legal entities, charities or purposes.
The settlor and the trustee will document the fiduciary agreement reached by signing a trust document (usually a trust deed). This document specifies all aspects of the trust, such as who the trustees and beneficiaries are, what assets will be transferred, the location of the trust etc. Usually the settlor will pass on his/her thoughts to the trustee on how the beneficiaries should benefit from the trust fund in the future either by stipulating fixed terms in the trust document or, for discretionary trusts, through a 'Letter of Wishes'. It is important to note that such a Letter of Wishes is not legally binding for the trustee, who have become legal owners of the trust once the trust document has been effected, but rather is to be used as a mere guidance. Once the trust has been properly set up and the initial trust funds have been transferred, additional future transfer of assets into the trust fund are possible. The trust document will be kept by the trustee. There is no obligation in Hong Kong or the British Virgin Islands to reveal such information to any third party. Trusts that are established in other jurisdictions are governed by those particular laws and regulations but, as a rule, no information sharing of confidential data will take place.
