Seminar Description: This seminar will address how taking an asset-based approach to estate planning and trust administration can be critical to a family when it comes to maximizing efficiency, flexibility, control, governance, succession, promoting family values, asset protection and tax savings.

Some of the more popular trust structures to be discussed will be: Regulated and Unregulated Private Family Trust Companies, Trust Protector Companies, Special Purpose Entities, Directed Trusts, Family Advisor statutes, Dynasty Trusts, Purpose Trusts, etc.

These trust structures all heavily involve the family and their advisors and vary greatly depending upon a family's assets, such as closely held business interests, LPs, LLCS, residential and commercial real estate, art, oil and gas, jewelry, antiques, financial assets, private equity, pets, land, honorary grave sites, life insurance and private placement life insurance. In order to maximize a family’s particular goals, each asset must be evaluated separately to determine the appropriate trust structure or combination. Additionally, the method a family oversees and/or invests these assets must also be considered when selecting a trust structure. This asset based approach to estate planning and trust administration can be critical to a family.
