After receiving regulatory approval, the merger transaction between TrustQuay and Viewpoint has been successfully concluded, following the initial announcement made in February of this year. This strategic merger establishes a prominent technology provider headquartered in the United Kingdom, specializing in wealth management, trust administration, corporate services, and fund solutions.
Bringing together the strengths of both companies, the combined organization now serves over 660 customers across Europe and Asia, marking a significant milestone. This customer base includes corporate services providers, trust and fund administrators, PLCs, family offices, trust banks, lawyers, and accounting firms.
Customers stand to benefit from an expanded range of capabilities and products, broader coverage of regulatory environments, and enhanced global customer service. The support is available 24/7 and encompasses a comprehensive suite of solutions, including entity management, client accounting, practice management, compliance, governance, and workflow tools. These solutions cater to over 46,000 operational users spanning 80+ jurisdictions.
With 12 office locations across Jersey, Guernsey, the UK, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Malaysia, Singapore, and Australia, the business is now well-positioned to deliver greater product innovation, scale up its professional services, customer support, and business development efforts, and accelerate growth in all key product areas. This growth trajectory is supported by a dedicated workforce of 270 employees.
