Personal / Family Trust

Personal Trust

A personal trust is a kind of trust business, created by the individual (Settlor/Trustor) for the interest of himself or any third party (“Beneficiary”) specially assigned by himself in order to transfer the asset/property to be managed/ administrated/ safe kept by the BIC Trust via the Trust deed. Personal trusts are separate legal entities that have the authority to buy, sell, hold, and manage property for the benefit of their trustors.

Family Trust

A family trust is a way to protect the Settlor’s assets for himself and his family in the future. With this arrangement, the assets such as your family home are owned and controlled by BIC Trust for the benefit of beneficiaries, who are likely to be yourself, your spouse, and your children. Setting up a family trust allows you to control how your assets will be used after you die.

For example, you can decide how assets are left to your minor children or grandchildren. The main advantage is the property in a family trust does not go through the probate process when you die. Probate can be time-consuming, and avoiding it means beneficiaries get access to the property much faster.
