trusts and asset protection, expertise in TavistockMany people are wary of trusts which are seen to be complicated and expensive. However trusts are very useful tools when it comes to protecting family assets and providing for beneficiaries.

Some trusts may be very straightforward for example where assets are simply being held until young children reach adulthood. Others may provide for a vulnerable beneficiary who is unable to manage their own affairs so they may be looked after without the risk of the funds being lost and preserving means-tested benefits.
