Our Story

Established in 2017 by seasoned Fiduciary practitioners who operated in the corporate environment for a combined 100 years plus. We grew uneasy with the corporate operating model which appears to “place profit before client”. The rigidness of the corporate offering, and the pedestrian manner in reacting to the client’s ever changing fiduciary needs precipitated the formation of BEXs. Our focus on flexible, cost effective client centric fiduciary solutions drives our story.
