Offshore Foundation Services
An offshore foundation is considered the corporate alternative to a trust and is a popular asset protection solution for individuals, family members, and organizations wishing to set up a charitable fund. A foundation takes on its own legal personality, can be used to charitable and non charitable purposes and has the right to sue third parties. It serves as an exceptional asset protection tool and allows for effective tax planning benefits including tax free donations for charitable foundations. With the scope of opening bank accounts and owning other companies under the foundations name, it serves as a commonly sought after asset protection solution by individuals and organizations around the world.

Offshore Foundation Services for Individuals and Businesses
Depending on the type of offshore foundation set up, there is a variety of asset types that can be held in the foundation. These assets include but are not limited to; shares and stocks, real estate, bank deposits, intellectual property, and life assurance policies.
Offshore foundations are the preferred asset protection solution for the protection of pension fund schemes, charitable work, art collections, stock option schemes, and insurance plans. A foundation has the capability to secure the wealth and assets held in the foundation and will ultimately prevent third party and creditor claims against the foundations assets.
