Structures & Products

Structures based in International finance centres may be used by any corporation or private individual who is involved in international business or investment, or who is prepared to transfer ownership of assets overseas in order to protect wealth. It is essential that anyone contemplating the use of an international structure obtain professional advice both domestically and overseas before establishing such a structure.

Asiaciti Trust works closely with clients' lawyers or tax consultants to determine the international structure most appropriate to the clients' requirements. Our extensive experience in international financial matters and our creative but practical approach enables Asiaciti Trust to assist professional advisors to maximise the profit potential of their clients. This added value concept also ensures that clients enjoy optimum flexibility in their wealth protection and income accumulation structures.

The international fiduciary product range is no longer limited to offshore trusts and companies. Over the past thirty years a number of factors have influenced the way that corporations and private clients utilise international business structures. Onshore taxation and corporate legislation have become more complex and inflexible; business and investment have become more international; and social changes have increased the risks of wealth depletion. Consequently, the client needs in the international arena are subject to continual change. Asiaciti Trust constantly monitors these developments so as to offer its clients state-of-the-art international products.
