International Corporate Trust Services

Corporate trust services through a global financial network

Through offices in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and the United States, Wells Fargo offers comprehensive corporate trust services and access to a network of financial institution institutions around the world. We work with public and private companies, government entities, special purpose vehicles, and the banking, securities, and insurance industries on a broad range of both complex and straightforward transactions. We work across time zones and markets to meet the requirements of your cross-border transactions.

Corporate finance

We offer a range of services tailored to meet your requirements, whether you are seeking to reach investors in international or U.S. markets. We administer a comprehensive array of public and private debt issues in the capital markets, and we support high yield debt, corporate bonds, and debt raised by financial institutions. 

Bank debt and loan administration

We are a leading provider of administrative, operational, and fiduciary services for lenders, borrowers, investors, and participants of credit facilities and syndicated and bilateral loans. We can support both new and existing facilities, whether they are distressed, restructured, debtor-in-possession, or payment-in-kind. When there is a conflict of interest between tiers, we can act as a third provider party. Similarly, when a lender wishes to exit a transaction, we can provide successor trustee, collateral, and administrative services that could eliminate conflicts of interest for an incumbent or allow an incumbent to remove itself from the deal.

Asset-backed securities

We provide trust, administrative, and calculation and reporting services for securitisations, warehousing, and structured finance deals. Whether the deals are backed by credit card receivables, auto loans and leases, or more unique assets such as fund flows from transportation, intellectual property, or even theme parks, we can help. 

Mortgage-backed securities

We offer comprehensive services for residential and commercial mortgage-backed transactions. We can work with you to determine your transaction needs and to customise a suite of business and technology services to optimise the performance of your transactions. Our superior technology and reporting systems make us ideal to support your transaction.

We provide agency and trustee services — including portfolio administration and advanced investor reporting — on CDOs, CLOs, CBOs, and other collateralised structures, along with web-based reporting through CTSLink® and CDOLink®. We can support deals with a variety of structures across multiple legal jurisdictions and our collaborative approach allows for timely deal negotiations and closings and efficient ongoing administration. 

Covered bonds

We tailor our trustee and agency services for issuers to improve operational and reporting efficiencies, such as maintaining transaction ledgers and accounts, performing waterfall calculations, and producing and publishing investor reports.

We have extensive experience working with transactions collateralised by multiple assets types, including commodities, derivatives, CDS, ABS, MBS, and synthetics.

We have comprehensive experience of supporting both ECA and commercial financed transactions in both debt and loan format, we have the experience of supporting transactions incorporating multi-jurisdictional security packages and the experience to support clients with complex deals and aggressive timelines.  We collaborate with law firms, leasing companies, lenders, arrangers, financial firms, and a wide variety of global corporations. 

Life settlements

We provide a comprehensive array of third-party longevity services. We will work closely with you to help you administer new and existing portfolios. If you are establishing an offshore vehicle or seeking to diversify your investor base, we can provide agency and trust services to support your transaction.
