Trust in a trust to keep assets secure
Abstract: Whether the economic climate is stable or volatile, one thing never changes: the need to protect assets from risk. That risk may occur as a result of factors entirely outside of owner control, such as the stock market or the behavior of heirs and creditors. This article points out that it’s wise to consider taking steps to mitigate the potential peril, including setting up a trust. The article explains that a trust can be a great way to protect assets. But to ensure the funds are unavailable to satisfy claims against the owner, the trust must become the owner of the assets and be irrevocable.
