ABOUT US

Solus Trust Company Limited is a privately owned, non-deposit taking, independent trust company.  We are not owned by nor have any affiliation with any other financial institution like a bank, credit union or investment firm.  We are dedicated to offering personalized fiduciary services in British Columbia.  Our independent, unbiased approach eliminates any inherent conflicts of interest which other trust companies may have when offering their own services in combination with the financial services of their affiliates.

Founded in 2005, Solus Trust Company has grown to become one of British Columbia’s largest trust companies.  Independence, decades of in-depth technical experience, local presence and personalized services make Solus Trust unique among corporate trustees.  Solus means solely or only in Latin and Solus Trust provides solely trust and estate relates services, including acting as Power of Attorney (POA).

INDEPENDENCE
Most trust companies are now owned by other financial institutions like banks.  Those financial institutions often offer a variety of other services such as investment management and financial planning either directly or through other wholly-owned companies.  The result of this cross-ownership is the tendency to encourage the trust or estate client to utilize the financial services offered by the corporate group.
A more unbiased approach would be to allow the client to select from all, not just a limited few, service providers. Solus Trust has no affiliation with any other financial institution like a bank, credit union or investment firm, eliminating any potential for the inherent conflict of interest other trust companies may have when offering their affiliates’ financial services. Solus Trust’s unbiased approach allows the client to recommend the type of service and provider. Therefore, the client’s current relationships with services providers remain intact without risk.
GOVERNMENT OVERSIGHT

SERVICES

Solus Trust offers the full range of personal trust and estate related services.

EXECUTOR
Settling an estate is a complex task of carrying out someone’s final wishes as expressed in their Will, and according to provincial laws. You can appoint Solus Trust as your Executor, Co-Executor, or Alternate Executor. Working closely with your circle of trusted advisors, we ensure that your wishes, as expressed in your Will, are carried out fairly and in a timely manner, with no conflicts of interest.
TRUSTEE
Solus Trust estate & trust professionals have extensive knowledge and understanding of trusts and trust law, with expertise in all aspects of trust administration. We have a reputation for developing enduring and empathetic relationships with beneficiaries and will administer your trust with integrity and sound judgment. You can choose to name Solus Trust as sole trustee, co-trustee (along with yourself, a family member or friend) or successor trustee should a family or friend be unable to fulfill their role.

As a financial institution regulated by BC’s Financial Institutions Commission, we can act as fiduciary to provide oversight to your family’s assets. As a non-deposit taking trust company, our focus is solely to act as trustee in the best interests of your beneficiaries, in a manner consistent with the terms of the trust agreement.

SUBSTITUTE DECISION MAKER
When an individual becomes mentally incapacitated, they require someone to continue to manage their financial affairs. Having an experienced professional at your side can provide welcome assistance during a difficult and challenging time.

Solus Trust can act as your Power of Attorney should you become incapable.

AGENT (ASSISTANCE)
In some cases, an individual is appointed executor or administrator of an estate or trustee of a trust, or hold Power of Attorney (POA), but subsequently finds that they do not have the time or the expertise to fulfill the obligation of those roles. Solus Trust can act as agent for an executor of an estate, or a trustee of a trust, or a POA. We will also act as agent for an administrator of an estate of someone who passed away without a Will.
