Selecting reputable and confidential jurisdiction for offshore trusts?

I am based in France and looking to set-up an offshore trust. The trust will then own a company (IBC) which will trade in equities.

I would like the trust to be in a country which maintains security and confidentiality, and is known as a reputable global trading nation. I am not seeking a jurisdiction considered to be a "tax haven", as the latter are being clamped down on by the US, UK, the OECD and the like.

What are the key criteria one should consider when looking for a jurisdiction to set-up a trust?

Which jurisdictions would you recommend pls?

Thank you.
