Chartered Trustee (ChT)


As Singapore continues to grow in scale and depth as a premier wealth management hub, the STA has a significant role to play in supporting the continuing growth of our premier hub.

STA is taking the development of the industry skilled workforce another step forward by giving due recognition to those who have contributed expertise and significant years of their working career to the trust and wealth management industry in Singapore with a professional mark of distinction – the Chartered Trustee (ChT) title.
