What Is A Family Protection Trust?

To understand the workings of Family Protection Trusts, it’s essential to first grasp the fundamentals of Trusts and how they work within Family Protection Trust planning.

In simple terms, a Trust is a legal arrangement whereby you transfer ownership of your assets to a third party, known as the “Trustee,” who holds them on behalf of the Trust’s members. The Trustee is responsible for managing the assets in line with your wishes, and those who receive disbursements from the Trust are referred to as “beneficiaries.”

By placing your assets in a Trust, they are no longer considered personal property, which means they are protected from potential legal challenges and creditors. Additionally, the assets may be subject to different Inheritance Tax (IHT) rules.

You can establish a Trust during your lifetime or specify one in your Will, which comes into effect upon your passing.
