Offshore

Asset-holding structures

As the trend for globalisation of wealth continues, clients from both common and civil law jurisdictions are increasingly using offshore structures as a flexible planning tool.

Succession planning and asset protection

We aim to help our clients achieve their objectives, including the protection and preservation of their wealth for future generations, acquiring personal and business assets using trusts and other international asset holding structures including companies, foundations, funds and partnerships.

In particular, we have worked closely with numerous clients on the design and implementation of offshore asset holding vehicles which allow a settlor (or other family members) to retain a degree of influence over issues and decisions of particular importance without compromising the validity of the structure for tax purposes.
