HGG Trust

HGG Trust, with its fiduciary practitioners being members of the Fiduciary Institute of South Africa (FISA), offers specialised trust services including the following:


HGG Trust can assist in the establishment and registration of inter vivos trusts. When acting as the independent trustee of a trust, HGG Trust takes care of the statutory compliance and administrative aspects associated with the management of a trust, in collaboration with the other trustees.


One of the most important documents that you will be signing is a will. It is therefore vital that it is drawn up by experienced experts in order to provide you with the peace of mind of knowing that your loved ones and dependants will be cared for when you are no longer there. But above all, you need to be assured that your last wishes are executable and that your will complies with all the validity requirements as prescribed in the Wills Act.

Estate administration

Regarding the administration of your estate, HGG Trust offers professional and experienced services for the administration of your estate to settle it as quickly as possible. Hendrik Gerryts acts as executor or estate proxy.

Estate planning

Before a will is drawn up or a trust established, it is necessary to do effective estate planning. This enables you to establish whether your estate will have a cash deficit. Subsidiary companies within the HGG Financial Group, such as HGG Wealth, offer investment advice to overcome such a shortage.

New business registrations and secretarial services

We are able to assist you with the following services:

  • Registering companies, trusts and amendments to close corporations,
  • Drawing up partnership and shareholder agreements as well as co-operation agreements,
  • Filing of annual financial reports, and
  • Drawing up company statutes and secretarial work, such as taking minutes and creating reports.
