A fiduciary structure helps to preserve wealth and offers a great deal of flexibility over the management and distribution of your assets.
The most widely used vehicle for asset protection is the Trust. A Trust is able to hold a variety of assets including immovable assets, stocks and shares, investment products, real and intellectual property, bank deposits and life insurance policies.

About Offshore Trusts
The Seychelles Trust
Foundations have been in use since the late 1930s. Historically, the Foundation's primary use was to provide protection for assets as well as confidentiality.
Foundations have since become well known, and are acceptable in many civil law jurisdictions where Trusts are less well known.
