HONG KONG and GENEVA, June 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Vistra, a leading global provider of corporate, trust and fund administration services announced today the rebranding of Acceptor to the Vistra name. The rebranding follows Vistra's successful merger announced in March with the Offshore Incorporations group of companies, the Asian market leader in company formation and associated services. As part of the Offshore Incorporations group, Acceptor is a premier corporate services provider, with offices in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan. Acceptor has a 30 year history in Asia having originally been owned by The Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited (HSBC) and Mayer Brown JSM (formerly known as Johnson Stokes & Master) until it became an independent service provider in the late 1980's.
Acceptor clients will now have the added benefit of access to the full range of Vistra group products and services from their network of 20 offices in 18 jurisdictions.
The rebranding marks the next step in the creation of a world-leading player in the trust and fiduciary industry, boasting the most balanced geographic reach globally. The Group aims to offer clients an unparalleled suite of services and solutions in the areas of fund administration, trust and corporate services.
Commenting on the rebrand, Bart Deconinck, Executive Chairman of the Board of the combined group, said: "This merger will reinforce mutual strengths and existing market leadership positions. It will also ensure our reputation for service delivery excellence is maintained. I am particularly pleased with the speed and efficiency with which this stage has been accomplished and our immediate focus now is to realise potential of the merger for our clients and colleagues."
Martin Crawford, Group CEO said: "Acceptor is in the unique position of having a 30 year pedigree and a large, experienced, bilingual team who understand the issues relating to cross-border business and investment structuring in Asia. With the strength of the Vistra brand and experience, our staff can now also bring to clients the benefit of European solutions."
