Maximising the impact of your contributions to society

TMF Group’s private wealth and family office team can help you establish structures such as foundations or trusts that facilitate your philanthropic ambitions. Furthermore, once the preferred structure is set up, we ensure it continues to run in an optimal and compliant way.

Depending on the chosen structure, we can perform several roles, including acting as trustee and administrator, in the case of a trust, or as a qualified member on the council of members, and act as a guardian when appropriate in the case of a foundation.

We ensure that you receive timely and relevant information to enable you to evaluate the impact of your endowments and consider whether funding of any given initiative should be continued. We also prepare the financial accounts of the trust or foundation, along with any bespoke reporting.

When it comes to legislative obligations, we can take on the burden of filing all required returns and declarations, including tax preparation and filing, and regulatory reporting.

As a truly independent provider, we can work with your auditors, advisers and investment manager without any conflict of interest in corporate governance or local regulatory restrictions. We can act as an independent sounding board when needed.

International compliance

Our global team can help family offices navigate international regulatory compliance. We know that each jurisdiction implements its own local regime with unique challenges, creating a maze of localised regulation. It is no wonder in-house compliance teams struggle to keep pace.
