We work with a wide variety of high net worth families and entrepreneurs along with their advisors to put in place structures that protect and enhance wealth for future generations as well as guard against political risk and economic uncertainty.
With many families and entrepreneurs having an increasing global footprint, effective wealth structuring that allows them to protect and enhance their wealth has never been more important.
Wealth structuring, however, can be a complex topic to navigate. From the choice of structure to the amount of involvement the family wish to have on an ongoing basis and cross-border taxation issues, it is essential that clients receive good advice before putting a structure in place.
At Highvern we work closely with our clients to ensure that any structure is right for their needs and that they fully understand the nature of the structure. Often we will work with highly experienced lawyers and tax advisors to achieve this.
One of the first decisions that will need to be made is whether the client wishes to use a trust, foundation, company, private trust company or partnership to structure their wealth. We can provide an introduction to each of these structures which will help to frame discussions moving forward.
The right wealth structure is likely to depend upon a combination of factors unique to the family including the reason for putting a structure in place, the type of assets that will be placed into the structure and where the client is resident. At Highvern, we have considerable experience of working with a wide variety of clients that helps us to find the right solution.
