Bermuda was one of the first international trust jurisdictions and over many decades, the island has become known as a top domicile for trusts.
Although Bermuda's trust law reflects English common law and principles of equity, Bermuda has enacted legislation designed to facilitate the use of trusts for modern commercial or private client applications.
Domestic legislation has kept Bermuda's trust laws progressive and innovative yet UK case law remains a persuasive authority, providing certainty and comfort to international families and their advisors.
Bermuda managed trusts are subject to the highest regulatory standards monitored by the Bermuda Monetary Authority ensuring efficient estate planning and asset protection.
R&H Trust Co. (Bermuda) Limited is a licensed and independent trust company, providing trustee, protector and enforcer services and offering trust advice to a variety of clients. We work closely with the client and their professional advisors in the structuring and administration of their affairs with responsiveness, technical proficiency and confidentiality at the heart of our service.

We administer private trust companies, and can provide directors as required.
