Summit Trust International is an independent trust services group. The group philosophy is to provide robust, un-conflicted trust and company management on a multi-jurisdictional basis. With an innovative ownership structure of 65% Sanlam Limited and 35% company directors, STI is a joint venture company combining the strengths of a well capitalised majority shareholder in Sanlam and the client focus and continuity of a owner-managed business through its director/shareholders.
Summit Trust International brings a combination of financial and management stability which enables it to provide continuity in personal relationships and the orderly passing of family wealth for high net worth individuals who require offshore trust and company management services.
Summit Trust International is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. Founded in 1999 as Close Trustees (Switzerland) SA, the company became affiliated with Sanlam Limited, the South African insurance group with effect from 16 November 2011.
We are not expecting to be the biggest offshore services provider, but we are striving to be the best.
