Introducing Digitised Cloudbased Trust Services

Our electronic signing platform and secure cloud storage ensures that trustees are kept involved in the trust’s decisions and administration, protecting your trust from being deemed a sham – think of it as your insurance policy against attack!

A trust is usually at the centre of a client’s estate plan, because it allows a client to divest himself of his assets for the benefit of loved ones, yet retain involvement in the administration of the trust and also include himself as a beneficiary who may benefit, usually at the discretion of the trustees.

No other single vehicle allows for this unique set of circumstances, thus providing an effective tax “avoidance” and asset protection structure as long as the trust deed is properly drafted and the trust is administered meticulously.
