Guided by a seasoned board of directors each with a successful career spanning commercial and investment banking, wealth management, fiduciary, legal and tax services, MTC provides industry leading services across a wide spectrum of the corporate and private client market.
MTC is deal hardened in the development finance, social impact and private equity sectors, however also specialises in working with East Africa based families to effectively deal with the challenges associated with the ownership, administration and succession planning around high value assets such as shares in family businesses, property and other investments.
MTC adheres to Minerva’s global standards and conforms to internationally accepted corporate governance, risk and compliance standards. Internationally, the relationship with the Minerva group allows MTC to offer a more in-depth and comprehensive service connecting offshore with onshore so as to seamlessly service clients’ requirements both inside and outside the continent.

Private Client Work:
Nairobi is the business and financial heart of East Africa and headquarters to many global multinational companies and international development agencies with activities in sub-Saharan Africa.
With its established presence in Kenya’s capital and being part of a large Africa-focussed international financial services group, MTC is uniquely placed to provide a wide range of bespoke onshore and offshore solutions to families, family businesses, corporate entities and international investors.
Our broad range of services helps individuals, entrepreneurs and families effectively manage personal assets and protect family wealth for current and successive generations.
These services have evolved over four decades and reflect our approach of giving clients choice in the location from which their relationship is managed.
Our private client teams in Jersey, London, Geneva, Mauritius, Nairobi, Dubai and Singapore are all experienced dedicated professionals for whom proactively delivering first class service is paramount.
The flexibility with which we deliver our comprehensive range of corporate services allows us to assist our corporate or more corporately orientated clients with full services, limited services or on a transactional basis.
The team places great emphasis on proactivity, responsiveness and technical strength in depth, working closely and in a co-ordinated manner with clients and their professional advisers.
The nature of our corporate work often involves administering structures with components in different jurisdictions, so our corporate team is drawn from across Minerva’s international offices.
We provide services designed to assist investment funds and associated parties in the creation and ongoing administration of a wide range of fund types. We have extensive experience working with investors and advisers whose strategies involve Asia, sub-Saharan Africa and the GCC.
We have strength in administering funds under the regulatory frameworks of Jersey and Mauritius although our experienced team are well qualified to provide services to fund structures and related parties in other well-regulated jurisdictions.
“My meeting with your team was most fruitful and I was impressed with their knowledge of the procedures and the laws.”Private client, South Africa
