Dedicated, Efficient, Independent and Traditional.


We at Ithaka are solely focused on a small number of families, providing each family with a dedicated team to understand their unique requirements and anticipating problems before they occur, working alongside trusted family advisers to explore and provide the very best solutions.


Fees are fixed and they are billed twice a year in advance. This saves both time and money for Ithaka and the families. In rare situations, out of scope fees are agreed before they are charged meaning that there is never any unpleasant surprises. Unlike larger more inward looking trust companies, Ithaka does not impose time sheets on their staff which means there is no temptation for a task to take longer than it should. It also ensures that Ithaka attracts the best and brightest minds Jersey has to offer.


Ithaka is an owner-managed trust company with each team having the time and space to get to know each family, ensuring decisions are made promptly. Unencumbered by unrealistic targets, Ithaka and its staff can remain nimble, adapting quickly to changing circumstances.


Ithaka represents a return to a more traditional approach to trusteeship where family members can turn to Ithaka for guidance, confident that it will be given promptly, efficiently and free from conflict.

Our Inspiration

As the poem says “As you set out for Ithaka; hope your road is a long one; full of adventure, full of discovery. Laistrygonians, Cyclops and angry Poseidon – don’t be afraid of them: you’ll never find things like that on your way…” Similarly, some families must navigate complex fiscal, legal and investment seascapes that are full of potential dangers while seeking to protect and enhance their heritage to pass on to future generations. We are there to guide each family who are on their own unique journey to the safe harbour of Ithaka.
