Masterminding Asset Protection : Understanding The Bridge Trust
Strengthen Your Master Asset Protection Plan® with a Bridge Trust®
The Bridge Trust is a less expensive and more flexible way to take advantage of the benefits of offshore asset protection trusts without giving up all control of your assets.
The Bridge Trust starts its life as a domestic asset protection trust. It is subject to the laws of the U.S. and the trustee can be in the U.S. Within the trust is a duress clause that outlines situations in which the trustee will be deemed to be acting under duress.
The advantages of a Bridge Trust are clear:
Reduce fear of lawsuits
Deter frivolous lawsuits
Peace of mind knowing your financial house is in order
