‘Knowing we have helped a family to sleep at night is a great feeling,’ says Roderick Balfour, co-founder and director of Virtus Trust. Balfour created Virtus 12 years ago after a 15-year career with Rothschild: his brainchild has expanded over the years, built upon a solid reputation for international trusts and estate planning on behalf of a global clientele. Virtus Trust also has offices in London, Guernsey, the Cayman Islands, Canada and New Zealand. A recent move into the US market was especially appreciated by clients. What attracts them? The firm is particularly well known for its ‘responsiveness and efficiency as well as its proactive approach to solving clients’ problems’.
