Bloodline Planning/Trusts

What is a Trust?

How can I protect my children's inheritance?

Without the correct 'Bloodline Planning/Trusts', some or all of your children's or grandchildren's (bloodline's) inheritance could be lost.

Protecting your inheritance for future generations is commonly referred to as 'Bloodline Planning/Trusts'.

Bloodline Planning/Trusts ensures that your assets reach your children, grandchildren and other relatives rather than ending up in the wrong hands! When assets are distributed to beneficiaries "absolutely" (i.e. they receive cash, property or other assets as a direct lump-sum payment), much can be lost. These assets are then considered part of the beneficiary's estate and would be at risk of attack from future divorce settlements, creditors, and taxation.

The strategic use of Trusts can ensure that your children and grandchildren can benefit ultimately from the inheritance you want them to receive and, at the same time, protect the family home and other assets from being lost to the costs of Long Term Care.

Assets not protected by a Trust...

  • Distributing assets absolutely to beneficiaries exposes those assets to risk.
  • Creditors or Bankruptcy claims.
  • The Divorce or separation settlements of future generations.
  • Further Inheritance Tax bills.
