Our international wealth structuring experts can help you hold, grow and protect your wealth wherever it is around the world using structures that are efficient, cost-effective and legally compliant.

Anyone with assets in different jurisdictions needs advice on managing their affairs to comply with the different laws as efficiently and safely as possible. We advise individuals, families, trusts and businesses – both UK residents with international assets and non-UK residents with UK assets.

Our services include:

  • Planning the inheritance of global wealth by the next generation

Our team has industry leading wealth structuring experience and we understand that this area is about more than just legal and financial decisions. Our objectives are often informed by family dynamics, cultural or religious concerns and personal relationships. We’ll work closely with you to build a holistic plan that takes everything into account.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Are Trusts Used in International Wealth Structuring?

Trusts are extremely useful for helping all sorts of people and entities, particularly non-dom UK residents, hold foreign assets and shield many UK assets (other than real estate) from inheritance tax.

You may even keep that inheritance tax protection even if you later become domiciled in the UK.

We have set up trusts involving a variety of different assets for families and individuals with widely ranging goals and circumstances. See our trusts page to learn more about our expertise in this area.

What Wealth Structuring Methods Do You Use?

We use advise on a wide variety of structures and strategies to efficiently manage and protect your wealth, including:

  • Trusts
  • Companies and Family Investment Companies
  • Foundations
  • Funds
  • Insurance products.

We take a tailor-made approach to each client and the exact structures we use will depend on your unique needs and requirements. A single trust might be the best option for one situation while someone else needs a web of multiple investment structures.

We’re committed to giving you the very best solutions, however complicated they might be.
