A history of Legacy
There is a lot in the name Legacy Trust Company — it encapsulates the narrative of our success so far and reflects our ability to think long-term while developing solutions that are perfectly aligned to our clients' needs, no matter how complex they may be. Our firm is long-standing, and so are our client relationships.
Incorporated in 1992 as a public company, and chartered under Section 77 of Part VIII of the Trustee Ordinance, our principal place operations in Hong Kong. Hong Kong has an established and robust Trust industry, built on the foundation of the common-law concept of equity and the 1934 Trustee Act. Amendments to the Trustee Ordinance passed in 2013 made Hong Kong even more capital-friendly concerning taxation, estate, and succession planning. With these changes, Hong Kong became arguably the most competitive jurisdiction for asset servicing and trust settlement anywhere on the globe, contributing to the rapid growth of the company.
In 2017, we celebrated 25 years of pioneering forward-thinking ideas and providing our clients with versatile solutions catering to their most significant financial needs. Today, our offices serve clients worldwide, relying on our in-depth industry knowledge and proven expertise. Our global network of employees, agents and partners offer financial protection and asset servicing products and estate planning. These products and services include trusts, custody, pension, and annuities. Most recently, we have also expanded our remit to include digital asset servicing.
