Your goal – preserving your assets
Preserving the assets in your portfolio can be just as important as building them up in the first place.
There could be any number of reasons why you want to look for ways to preserve your assets; for example:
- ensuring that, when you die, your wealth is preserved for your chosen beneficiaries
- maintaining the privacy of your wealth
- separating your personal assets from your business.
One way to achieve preservation of your assets is through the use of a trust.
What are the potential benefits of using a trust?
Some think that trusts are just designed for the rich but they are just as useful for anyone needing to protect their business or looking for confidentiality of estate planning. They can be used for:
- passing on your wealth
- avoiding probate
- asset preservation
- forced heirship
- complex family
- trust confidentiality
- professional trustee
There are different types of trust arrangement available. You should take professional and independent tax and legal advice before considering setting up a trust.
