An offshore trust, also known as a fiduciary trust, is a legal entity derived from common law. It allows for the management and protection of assets and properties transferred by a settlor or donor.

Establishing an offshore trust occurs when a settlor transfers specific assets or capital to the trust. This is formalized through a trust agreement, also known as a trust deed or declaration of trust. In this agreement, the settlor appoints a trustee to manage the trust and names one or more beneficiaries who will receive the benefits of the trust.

An offshore trust facilitates the legal transfer of property for asset protection, estate planning, and wealth management purposes. Typically, a trustee manages the offshore trust in accordance with the terms of the trust agreement and in the best interest of the designated beneficiaries.

It’s important to note that offshore trusts are often used in legal and tax strategies to optimize asset management and take advantage of the benefits offered by offshore jurisdictions, such as privacy and favorable tax regimes.


Our law firm assists in establishing offshore foundations in various offshore jurisdictions. We provide guidance on all setup and operational procedures, as well as the selection of administrators and other advisors. Additionally, we help determine the most appropriate jurisdiction for registering your foundation. Finally, we design a custom structure to meet your specific needs.

Furthermore, an offshore foundation is a legal entity registered without defined beneficiaries or owners, as the foundation itself is the beneficiary of its own assets.

Moreover, we offer a variety of offshore foundation types to meet your goals, taking into account your level of involvement, optimization of returns, and preservation of anonymity.

In addition, an offshore foundation offers exceptional management flexibility and numerous advantages for ensuring the control you seek in asset management, thereby facilitating your activities.

Lastly, the bylaws of an offshore foundation define its operations and are fully customizable. For example, they can set limits on control and amendments, as well as the foundation’s lifespan, making this structure one of the most flexible in terms of management. Asset management, in accordance with the rules established in the bylaws, can be directed towards any objective, whether for expenses or investments, with the possibility to modify these directives at any time according to your needs.

Asset Protection
Offshore foundations and trusts are powerful legal tools for safeguarding assets. By creating a legal separation between the foundation's assets and those of the founders and beneficiaries, they provide strong protection against creditors, lawsuits, and other legal risks.
Privacy and Confidentiality
Offshore jurisdictions often offer greater privacy and confidentiality for the founders and beneficiaries of foundations and trusts. Furthermore, in these jurisdictions, beneficiary and asset details can remain confidential, providing more privacy than other jurisdictions. This is particularly appealing for those seeking enhanced asset protection and greater discretion in their financial affairs.
Estate Planning
Offshore foundations and trusts are excellent tools for estate planning. They enable individuals to preserve and manage assets for future generations while minimizing inheritance taxes. Additionally, they ensure that assets are distributed according to the founder’s wishes.
Tax Efficiency
Offshore wealth management vehicles can offer significant tax advantages within the bounds of current legislation. Additionally, they can reduce taxes on investment income, capital gains, and estates, depending on the tax laws of the relevant jurisdictions. By choosing the right jurisdiction and considering the residence status of the founder and beneficiaries, it is possible to optimize tax planning legally and effectively.
Timely and Cost-Efficient Transfer of Assets to Successors
An offshore trust is a smart choice for planning the distribution of a deceased person’s assets to their family. It helps avoid probate and its associated costs and can sometimes bypass compulsory heirship rules, ensuring heirs are chosen freely.
