Family trusts

Often the best way to hold, protect and manage your investment accounts are through a trust structure. Trusts can also help with the intergenerational transfer of assets and provide additional protection for your hard earned wealth. A family trust provides the ideal vehicle to hold growth assets, like your global share portfolio.

Your Trust will become part of your Estate planning. As such we can prepare and present all documents in a custom heirloom folder should you desire.

Whether you are a local or offshore investor, New Zealand trusts have many benefits and may offer certain tax advantages.
