Overview of

Knightshield Corporation Limited


It does not take very long for a family that has recently come into significant liquidity to learn what more experienced families have known for a long time, …that managing family wealth is a complex and time-consuming affair. Its like having several businesses all rolled into one with the average family having ten or more different financial professionals and administrators overseeing activities. This places an onerous burden of responsibility on the decision makers within the family and can lead to internal conflicts. Sometimes one or several of these professional relationships break down and one must begin again with new relationships usually resulting in a great deal of frustration and wasted time.

At Knightshield Corporation Limited we benefit from a great deal of experience in helping to maintain the successful continuity of relationships both with our clients and with out-side professionals. This often forms a key criteria of client objectives.

Our Corporate



Most families of the traditional Family Office are based in the same country as their Family Office. Their businesses; real-estate holdings; investments; banking and cash assets are more often than not also based in the same country as their Family Office. In addition, all these and other financial arrangements are for the most part predominately held in the same currency.

What happens when you, your family, your entire wealth structure and all of your advisers are all in the same boat together when it starts to sink? What happens when you are all under the same roof when the politics change? Your strategies all go to the wall and you are trapped. Instead of being in a position to anticipate changes and make necessary adjustments you find you are constantly having to react to every wind of change politics and economics throws at you.

Not with Knightshield Corporation Limited, we are as flexible to meet changes as a river of water flowing down hill. Our international corporate structure and focus insure you have a great deal of space built into your arrangements. You want maximum flexibility when the game plan needs to be changed. Itʼs not about thinking outside of the box either, but rather being outside of the box when it catches fire.

Knightshield Corporation Limited is ideally positioned to meet these challenges. Our philosophy is that we should operate on a worldwide playing field, diversifying affairs within different legal jurisdictions for greater long-term security and stability. We are impassioned by a sense of vision for the freedom and financial independence of our clients. Our philosophy of private-client and corporate international legal diversification aims to preserve this vision and secure it for future generations.


the Knightshield Corporation Limited
Management Team


A results orientated team with a highly pro-active focus and an emphasis on exceeding client expectations on a consistent basis. Some Examples:

1) Advised clients on the sale of USDollars for Swiss Francs (CHF) December 5th of 2008. The USDollar subsequently collapsed against the Swiss Franc (CHF) approximately 3 weeks later netting our clients a 17% return on USD$1M by December 31st, of 2008.

5th of December, 2008
USD$1,000,000.00 = CHF1,219000
31st of December, 2008
CHF1,219000 = USD$1,169,000.00

However, this same trade, 3 1/2 years later on 31st of May, 2011, returned gains to clients of approximately 43%;

5th of December, 2008
USD$1,000,000.00 = CHF1,219000
31st of May, 2011
CHF1,219000 = USD$1,433,000.00

2) Advised clients effect 100% allocation of USD$1M to pure gold bullion in Switzerland in December of 2008 at USD$800 per ounce. By August of 2011 the price had surged to USD$1,917 per ounce breaking an all time high per ounce in Swiss Francs and netting our clients over 137% gains in less than 3 years more than doubling clients wealth. This put our asset allocation gains to clients in 4th place world-wide when compared to some nearly 80,000 international managed funds with 174,000 employees. There were only 3 funds in the entire world that outperformed our advice during this period.


3) Private Forex Funds Management by Derek C. Brereton Andrews netted 171% gains in 2015. When compared to the best US based Hedge Funds that is an outperformance of nearly 120% during the same period.
