Building Africa's Future

Through our teams in Mauritius and Jersey, we offer fiduciary services from two leading international financial centres that bring together the best of both jurisdictions. 

With some of the world’s fastest-growing economies, Africa has strong long-term growth prospects. Yet this diverse continent presents a variety of complex issues for businesses and investors ranging from challenging regulatory, legal and tax systems to quickly evolving political and social environments.  

Standard Bank’s corporate and fiduciary services help navigate these challenges. Establishing international holding structures which are administered by our experts, you can take advantage of the fantastic investment opportunities across the continent, confident in the knowledge you are partnering with an institution dedicated to driving Africa’s growth. Examples of structures we implement for our clients include –

  • Trusts to hold business assets or personal assets
  • Holding companies
  • Employee benefit trusts
  • International savings and retirement plans​
  • Foundations

Working together, we help you find the most effective ways to invest, pool, manage and transfer the capital destined to build the Africa of tomorrow.
