Corporate Shareholder Services

If you’re a beneficial owner, there are times when you may require enhanced privacy – for example, when conducting a specific transaction where it would be inappropriate or even dangerous to reveal your identity.​

At Vistra, we can provide corporate or individual shareholders to help protect your privacy, in jurisdictions that deem it an acceptable arrangement. In a typical example, you would nominate a corporate shareholder for the company, who would be charged with representing your interests. That shareholder would then issue a Declaration of Trust in your favour.
