Middle East

Our dedicated Middle East team, consisting of experienced trust and estate practitioners, chartered secretaries and accountants, and legal, tax and investment professionals, have worked with clients and advisors in the Middle East for over three decades, during which time we have developed an in-depth understanding of the region, its people and the nuances of doing business there.

This experience includes managing a wide variety of structures for our clients, who include financial institutions, sovereign wealth funds and high net worth families.

Our physical presence in Dubai is compounded by regular visitation to the Middle East from senior JTC representatives based in other global regions. We also have a comprehensive network of regional intermediary contacts.

“In order to meet the ever-evolving needs of clients and market expectations, JTC invests heavily into new products, acquisitions and offices. Our services are reliable, flexible and innovative and we follow the highest regulatory standards.”

What We Do

JTC has a dedicated Middle East team and has been working with clients in the region for many years, providing a range of private client and corporate services.

We are well-versed in assisting international companies with the complexities of operating in multiple jurisdictions so as to benefit from specific tax or investor protection treaties. Depending on requirements, we can offer services from key financial centres of strategic importance to our Africa connected clients such as those in Asia, the Caribbean, the Channel Islands, Europe, Mauritius and the United States, among others.

We can offer our Middle Eastern private clients a comprehensive suite of trust and fiduciary services, including entity formation and administration, accounting and reporting and philanthropy and family office services. In particular, JTC has a long tradition of advising Middle Eastern clients in relation to Private Trust Companies (PTCs); succession planning is typically at the forefront of the families’ minds when establishing these structures.

We can also provide access to citizenship and residency services in addition to offering a range of treasury services that include pooled and segregated cash management, foreign exchange and lending.

Our approach to holding client assets is highly flexible and we have within our teams an abundance of expertise in areas such as real estate, private equity, yachting and aviation.

Having nurtured an in-depth understanding of the Middle East over a period of many years, we are well-placed to not only seamlessly meet our clients’ and advisors’ expectations, but also to exceed them.
