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 related services, including acting as Power of Attorney (POA).
Solus Trust Company is incorporated under the Financial Institutions Act (BC) and is regulated by the British Columbia Financial Services Authority (BCFSA), a government agency in the Province of British Columbia.
Solus means “only” in Latin, which reflects the fact that we provide only personal trust and estate services.

Our Trust Officers and Trust Administrators are focused solely on the delivery of quality service, and are located in your community.

INDEPENDENT, NON-DEPOSIT TAKING
MANY DECADES OF EXPERIENCE
PERSONALIZED, BESPOKE SERVICE
AMONGST THE LARGEST IN B.C.
I had Solus appointed as co-executor for a testamentary family trust. The company appointed a Senior Trust Officer who was responsible for all matters including accounting and reporting, and more importantly, all dealings with the beneficiary. Having watched how this was done, I was able to resign as a trustee with a happy, clear conscience. I referred a friend to Solus and when he passed it was executor for his estate. The family has expressed great satisfaction at Solus’s performance. I have named Solus as trustee for my own planned testamentary trust and as backup power of attorney and executor in my will.
Solus Trust is located at Suite 520, 1100 Melville Street – Vancouver, BC. Parking is available in the building, and public transit is nearby.
