Jersey Foundations

Anglo Saxon Trust can establish and provide the council members and administration for Jersey foundations.

Jersey foundations have similarities to both trusts and companies, in that, in general terms, they can have beneficiaries and they also have a separate legal personality.

The constitutional documents are of a contractual nature and may therefore be more familiar in a civil law jurisdiction and those providing assets or founding the Jersey foundation are able to reserve powers.

We can explain the circumstances where a Jersey foundation may be useful and set out some of the applications to which they have been put.

We can assist with the content of the regulations and the charter, which we engage our Jersey legal advisors to engross.
