Fiduchi is an independent owner-managed financial services business which allows us to deliver bespoke solutions that assist our clients effectively achieve their goals in a cost-effective manner. One reason why Fiduchi’s existing clients have chosen us as their trusted partner is our ‘work with you’ approach.

How we can help with your offshore trust requirements

Fiduchi provides professional trustee services and associated administration services in respect of their clients' Employee Benefit Trusts (EBTs) with the additional benefit of access to a market-leading administration platform.

EBTs are commonly used in the facilitation of share and cash incentive arrangements by a range UK and international clients of all sizes, from large listed companies to privately owned businesses and portfolio companies. 

We understand that the purpose of the EBT will differ from client to client and depend on the incentive arrangements adopted so our service is tailored in accordance with individual client requirements, whilst always being mindful of the trustee’s overriding duties.

We are expertly positioned to establish new trusts or accept the transfer of existing trusts. In either case, our experience is such that we are able to work alongside clients and their advisors to assist with a broad scope of requirements. Commonly seen examples include:

Listed Companies

  • The facilitation of the satisfaction of awards granted to employees;
  • The hedging of share and cash plan arrangements;
  • The settling of subscription costs of new issue shares for award satisfaction.  

Private companies

  • The facilitation of the satisfaction of awards granted to employees;
  • The hedging of share and cash plan arrangements;
  • Acting as nominee for employees under Management Incentive Plans or similar arrangements;
  • The provision of an internal share market where liquidity might not otherwise exist;
  • Acting as co-owner of interests under joint ownership arrangements;
  • The facilitation of wider employee ownership, often through use of an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT).

Alternative incentive arrangements

Whilst employee benefit trusts are the vehicle of choice for most incentive arrangements we understand that there are occasions when an alternative may be the preference. 

Fiduchi is well versed in the use of other vehicles, including companies and partnerships, to ensure that its clients’ needs are satisfied. Our flexibility enables us to work with clients and their advisors to implement that most appropriate arrangements for the case in hand.

Our online incentive plan platform allows for the effective administration of a large range of employee share and cash plans as well as employee nominee arrangements.
