Maltese Trusts offer an attractive solution for family wealth planning and asset ring-fencing, while Fiduciary and Escrow arrangements concluded with a trusted and licensed professional, allow for an asset to be temporarily held by a trusted third Party, in name only, for any purpose.

Trust, Escrow and Fiduciary services in Malta

Unlike in some jurisdictions, ‘Trusts’ and ‘Escrow’ accounts in Malta are completely different legal relationships.

In Malta, if a Trust is set-up, legal ownership of the asset settled on Trust with the Trustee is vested in the Trustee, to hold the asset for the benefit of the Beneficiaries of the Trust.

On the other hand, in an Escrow arrangement, the asset held by the Escrow Agent, is only temporarily held by the Agent pending a trigger event which will result in an action, such as transferring the asset to a third party, as outlined and agreed on an Escrow Agreement. The ownership of the asset does not vest in the Escrow Agent.

Similarly, in a Fiduciary arrangement, the Person holding the asset (the Mandatary), in its name, is not the legal owner of the asset, but is holding the asset on behalf of a third-party owner (the Mandator), on a Fiduciary basis, and will have to receive instructions from the Mandator before transferring or charging the asset.
