US – Delaware

In 2022, JTC acquired an established offering in Wilmington, Delaware.

The State of Delaware has been a recognized leader and innovator in trust and corporate law since carving out a separate court for business disputes in the State Constitution in 1776. It is a leading US-domestic jurisdiction for trusts due to well-established and flexible trust and tax laws, along with a supportive Governor, legislature and Chancery Court. Delaware was the first state to permit directed trusts, which allows the grantor to split the traditional responsibilities of a trustee between two or more fiduciaries. This approach gives the grantor more flexibility and control with respect to investments.

JTC helps wealthy individuals and families who are based all over the globe to manage their estate, tax and assets efficiently. In the USA, JTC can offer a complementary suite of Delaware, South Dakota and Wyoming trust services.
