OUR HISTORY
In 1901 in the city of Matanzas, Cuba, a new commercial-financial company was born whose main objective was to properly manage and grow the properties and businesses of a notable family from Matanzas.
Starting in 1924, the firm called Alfonso & Ferrera, following the European tradition of the founders, began to provide commercial banking services and, from 1940, It also specialized in advisory services in insurance and investment matters for its clients in Cuba. However, radical changes in the political system of Cuba starting 1959 interrupted the development of the company, and its owners, already in their third generation, moved to the United States where it was necessary to recreate the company, initially focusing on real estate business development.
In 1980 the fourth generation of the founders expanded into the Latin American market establishing a presence in Panamá, Venezuela and Costa Rica, providing advisory and business trust services to its clients in the Americas.
As a fundamental part of its strategic growth projection, in 2016 the administrators of Alfonso & Ferrera established, a business trust (Florida Business Trust), in the the State of Florida, United States, following an existing modality in the law of the State of Massachusetts, whose registered name is The Viera Trust Florida Trust. The purpose of Viera Trust is to offer our clients the necessary services to create fiduciary structures (trust) that protect their assets and can invest intelligently in the financial and real estate market under a fiduciary structure that enhances and preserves private assets. In addition, in our work projection, custody of funds is a useful service for many clients, particularly from outside the United States.
We are trustees and confidants of private wealth, much like the role private bankers play with respect to commercial banking and investment management services. In fact, Viera Trust often fills the role of a separate interface between the client and the private banker or investment manager.
