Private Trust Companies
A private trust company (PTC) is used within a family office structure when your family wants to retain agency in the decision-making process and permit family members and advisors to take an active role in the management of trust affairs. In fact the sole purpose of a PTC is to act as a corporate trustee to the trust, or a group of trusts – as long as those trusts are connected.
PTCs protect confidentiality, but provide a comprehensive framework under which family members can be involved in decision-making (by being on the board) allowing for peace-of-mind in the preservation of family assets.
