Trusts & Estate Planning
A Trust is an English legal concept whereby certain property or assets can be legally transferred to one or more persons (Trustees) in order to be managed for the benefit of other persons (beneficiaries).
Trusts are effective vehicles to hold and administer wealth and particularly advantageous for estate planning and asset protection purposes. They are also very suitable for joint ventures that require an independent trustee or as part of commercial arrangements, to protect lenders, for example.
Investors wishing to create a trust should seek professional advice, as there are a number of formalities that apply to the formation of a valid trust. We have broad expertise in this area and we can facilitate both the setup and administration of trusts.
