Appleby Fiduciary Business (AFB) has provided offshore management and administration services to high net worth individuals, private companies, funds and global corporations for over 25 years. Our unique global footprint across nine offshore jurisdictions helps provide clients with the best jurisdiction, product and service mix. 

Following the management buyout from the Appleby Group by private equity firm Bridgepoint, Appleby Fiduciary Business (AFB) and the Appleby law firm became to two independent businesses on 31 December 2015.

AFB consists of motivated individuals from disciplines including legal, administration, compliance, accountancy, chartered secretarial and banking. Clients gain an integrated solution across service areas, whether in a single location, or across multiple jurisdictions. As the structures we administer can often have a multi-jurisdictional footprint, we are accustomed to liaising with professional advisors from around the globe and in dealing with the communication complications that can arise in such circumstances.

What sets us apart from our competitors is our commitment to the delivery of service excellence; this underpins all that we do. Whilst technical expertise is a given, we maximise the value and effectiveness of our client structures by offering a highly personal, client-focused and proactive service, and a fresh perspective. Our team of professional specialists combines commercial acumen with attention to detail and responsiveness, to ensure we meet our clients’ needs on time, every time.

Our commitment to service excellence has been recognised by leading industry publication Citywealth who has ranked several members of the AFB team in their 2015 Leaders List and shortlisted us as ‘Trust Company of the Year’ in several jurisdictions. We have also been nominated as a ‘Top 25 Trust Company’ by eprivateclient for the past four years running.

Our trust companies are regulated by the relevant local authorities in each jurisdiction.


Appleby Fiduciary Business fully understands and respects the need for strict confidentiality. Our clients can be assured their affairs will be treated discreetly and professionally at all times.
