Hawksford obtains Cayman trust license

The trust license issued by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority enables Hawksford Services (Cayman) Ltd. to provide a full range of trust services to private client and corporate clients.

With this expansion into Cayman, Hawksford can now offer fiduciary services to clients from Europe, Asia and the Caribbean.

Hawksford Director Steve Robinson, who will help to build Hawksford’s name in the Cayman market, said the trust licence represents a milestone for the international corporate, private client and funds business.

“We are delighted that Hawksford now has operating capabilities in the Cayman Islands. This is a significant development for the company and our clients. Hawksford’s new Cayman business will bring scalability to how we are able to service our international client base and will open up new service areas for the company.

“From a structuring perspective, our broadened capabilities will be particularly complementary for our clients in the Asian, U.K. and U.S. marketplaces,” Mr. Robinson said.

Hawksford’s Chief Executive Maxine Rawlins added, “As part of our international growth strategy, Hawksford is building a network of jurisdictions around the globe and we are delighted to extend our footprint into the Cayman Islands. Obtaining this licence reinforces our commitment to provide our clients with an international service.”

Hawksford is an international corporate, private client and funds business offering services to trusts, companies, foundations, partnerships, family offices and investment funds. Hawksford is backed by U.K. mid-market private equity firm Dunedin.
