Asset Protection Trusts (APTs)

Preserving your hard-earned assets against unforeseen claims and liabilities is a cornerstone of sound financial planning. Our expertise in Asset Protection Trusts (APTs) can serve as your shield, offering robust protection against the uncertainties in life.

What is an Asset Protection Trust?

An Asset Protection Trust (APT) is an advanced trust designed to safeguard your assets from potential creditors, lawsuits, or judgments. As a form of irrevocable trust, an APT involves transferring ownership of assets into a trust under terms that prevent future creditors from reaching these assets. This arrangement ensures that your wealth is preserved for the intended use, such as family inheritance, business succession, or charitable endeavors.
