Notes to editors:


STM is an international financial services group which is listed on the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange and made its first acquisition in 2007. The Group specialises in estate and succession planning and wealth structuring for high net worth individuals and their families.  STM's clients include entrepreneurs, celebrities, sports stars and affluent retirees.

STM's strategy is to grow organically and by acquisition, in particular looking for businesses and jurisdictions which provide a complimentary offering to the Group. Today, STM has operations in Gibraltar, Spain, Jersey and Malta. The Group is also looking to expand through the development of additional products and services that its ever more sophisticated clients demand.

In order to achieve this, STM has, for example, incorporated a Gibraltar Life Insurance Company, STM Life plc, which provides life insurance bonds - wrappers in which a variety of investments - including investment funds - can be held. STM has developed a specialist international pensions division which specialises in QROPS, QNUPS and EFRBS. The growth in Jersey, through the acquisition of Zenith, has coincided with the introduction of the Jersey Foundation legislation which has resulted in a growing number of enquiries and resultant business.
