Trust Management

The use of trusts can provide asset protection now, into the future and beyond

We can help you protect your assets by creating a legal structure such as a trust which may provide long lasting wealth creation and protection benefits for you and your family.

As the trustee is the legal owner of the assets, the trust provides a level of protection against personal liability if structured appropriately  and may also allow you to arrange your finances in a tax efficient manner.

Trusts may also be used to allocate money for the sole purpose of caring for a family member who has special needs, or is a minor, or for a charitable purpose which can continue on into perpetuity.
