Nedgroup Trust through the Jersey and Guernsey office provides services relating to the incorporation and administration of Jersey foundations.

  • Neither a company nor a trust, a foundation has some similarities to both. 
  • It is an incorporated body that has separate legal personality and can hold assets, transact business and sue or be sued in its own name.
