A Trust holds special status within the law and has been used for centuries to safely ring fence and safe-guard an individual’s assets. This proven and established legal mechanism is part of everyday life and is commonly used by large associations, corporations and high net worth individuals.
Trusts are very well placed in the fabric and tradition of English Law and most charities, schools and hospitals successfully function under this robust legal model.
