Global corporate trust service provider
At the time of exiting, Vistra (“the Group”) was a global independent provider of trust, fiduciary, corporate and fund services delivering personal and tailored solutions to international corporations, institutional investors and high net worth individuals and their families.
Through its OIL brand, the Group was the largest offshore company formation and services specialist in the world, with a renewal base of over 100,000 companies and serving clients a comprehensive range of corporate formation and management services.
In 2011 Vistra became a global leader in the trust and corporate services sector following its merger with the Asian market leader, Offshore Incorporations Group, in a transformational deal which has doubled the size of the group and provided the opportunity to cross-sell corporate services on a truly international basis.
Vistra Group is headquartered in Hong Kong, with offices in 32 countries across the world.
The IK 2007 Fund acquired Vistra in August 2009, and subsequently divested to Baring Private Equity Asia in October 2015.
