Trusts and Foundations are used for a variety of reasons. Whether it is for the purpose of succession and estate planning, to protect your assets, to manage forced heirship rules, to preserve family wealth, to navigate tax and regulatory issues or to plan for the future of your family or businesses – identifying the most appropriate structure is crucial to ensure that it sufficiently protects what you care about and that such assets are retained in the way that you desire.
