Pin It

2108_logoHamilton, Bermuda and George Town, Grand Cayman: The Bank of N.T. Butterfield & Son Limited (“Butterfield”) today (11) announced that it has established a separately incorporated trust company in the Cayman Islands—Butterfield Trust (Cayman) Limited (“BTCL”)—through which it will continue to provide personal and corporate trust services.  BTCL is a wholly owned subsidiary of Butterfield Bank (Cayman) Limited (“BBCL”), which is itself a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bermuda-based Butterfield.  Trust and fiduciary services were previously provided in Cayman under the auspices of BBCL.

Butterfield has a long history of providing Cayman-domiciled trust and fiduciary services, having established operations in Cayman as Butterfield Trust in 1967.  That entity was among the first to have received a Class A Banking Licence in the jurisdiction, leading to its evolution, over 45 years, into a leading full service financial institution in Cayman.

The formation of a trust company that operates separately from the Bank is reflective of the increasing importance clients place on the independence of trustees, and is consistent with Butterfield’s operating model in other jurisdictions from which it provides trust and fiduciary services: The Bahamas, Bermuda, Guernsey, Switzerland and New Zealand.

Brian Balleine has been appointed the Managing Director of BTCL, heading up Butterfield’s Trust business in Cayman.  Other members of the BTCL Board are: Rosalie Jamieson, Head of Corporate and Institutional, Peter Walker, Head of Private Clients, Conor O’Dea, Managing Director, BBCL and Senior Executive Vice President – International Banking at Butterfield; and Bob Moore, Executive Vice President and Head of Group Trust at Butterfield.

Mr. Moore said, “The formation of Butterfield Trust (Cayman) Limited is just the most recent step in the evolution of Butterfield’s trust business internationally.  The multi-jurisdictional capability that we offer clients has been key to our success and will continue to be a driver of growth going forward. Cayman, as a jurisdiction, is an essential component of that model.”

Butterfield Trust  (Cayman) Limited is licenced and regulated by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority.
