Trusts are a highly flexible and a well proven method of confidential succession, wealth and inheritance planning. Working with your preferred advisors, Artemis can help construct various types of trust carefully tailored to suit both private and corporate client requirements.
The use of companies, either stand-alone or as an integral part of more complex structures, provides many planning and risk-mitigating opportunities. Artemis provides a full company incorporation and administration service, including provision of corporate or personal directors, company secretary, registered office, nominee shareholding facilities and accountancy services.
We also provide a wide range of financial services.
Our Board of Directors have a wealth of knowledge and experience in international trust and corporate administration and are committed to providing carefully tailored and competitive solutions.
