Emerald Trust Offering

What is the Emerald Trust offering?

A trust linked to a discretionary managed portfolio offering, with competitive fixed fees. The trust is domiciled and managed in Jersey, providing a trustee service of the highest standard. The trust is a reserved powers trust and the trustee has a restricted oversight obligation regarding investment portfolio performance. It also provides for the appointment of a Protector nominated by the Settlor.

The Protector will hold some powers and his/her consent will be required for certain actions of the trustees, including the power to consider and request a change in the investment mandate of the trust.

Risks to note

  • The corporate trustee restricts its responsibility and liability in respect of the portfolio and its performance: for further information, see the trust deed and investment management agreement
  • Any transfer of the portfolio or structure to a third party or third parties may take time and the associated costs and any market volatility of asset prices during transfer may contribute to a fall in portfolio value for which Stonehage Fleming cannot be held responsible
  • Performance is restricted to Stonehage Fleming asset management services and other risks apply. See under ‘Principal Risks’ in the Trust Offering Investments factsheet
