TRUST AND TRUSTEE SERVICES

A fiduciary structure can help preserve your wealth and offer you greater flexibility over the management and distribution of your assets. The most common type of fiduciary structure is a trust, a binding arrangement whereby assets are transferred to a “trustee” who is required to administer the trust assets for the benefit of specified beneficiaries strictly in accordance with the terms of the trust. Through OCRA Worldwide’s licensed trust and trustee companies clients are offered:

  • A bespoke service regarding the establishment of an offshore trust
  • Trusteeship and related services
  • Administration of trust funds
  • Trust accounting and maintenance of asset ledgers
  • Reporting and filing as appropriate
  • Guidance

FOUNDATION AND COUNCIL SERVICES

Foundations are a very important component when structuring the ownership of family and corporate assets and are particularly important where trusts are generally not requested. They are in many respects similar to corporate entities but afford the protection and continuity derived from the use of trusts.

Practical uses include:

  • Holding assets which can be passed on from one generation to the next (estate planning)
  • Asset protection
  • Inheritance tax planning
  • Avoidance of forced heir ship rules
  • Maintenance of corporate control
  • Separation of voting and economic benefits
  • Employee share option schemes
  • Pension funds
  • Art collections
  • Charitable purposes
