Singapore Trust Company

We were the first company in Singapore to be licensed under the Trust Companies Act and continue to be regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.

Why Singapore?

Singapore is one of the fastest growing and most dynamic financial centres in the world.

Its development as an international finance centre has its foundations in sound economic principles, a pro-business environment and strong regulatory and supervisory framework.

Singapore is an important gateway and strategic link for international investors, being well placed to serve the fast-growing markets of the Asia-Pacific region, in addition to China. An extensive international network of trade agreements also makes Singapore a premier global finance hub.
