A trust is an indispensable financial planning tool to use with your clients, both to help mitigate tax, and to give control over how and when wealth is distributed. It can deliver a powerful solution when used alongside an offshore bond, which can be held as an underlying asset of the trust.

For advisers, as well as the tax advantages, trusts offer an opportunity to fulfil clients' wishes and set their minds at rest, cementing long-term plans and strengthening the adviser/client relationship.
