Existing Structure Review


As part of our services we also offer clients a review of their existing corporate and trust structures to see if these structures are compliant and are able to continue to build, manage, preserve and transition the wealth they hold and manage. We look to review such items as to see if they remain compliant today as they did when first set up and meet the wishes of the client:

  • Risk tolerance
  • Asset allocation
  • Tax compliance
  • Existing Wealth plan
  • Review of existing Wills
  • The Trust documentation
  • Analysis of ongoing fees and costs
  • Review of licensing revenue streams
  • The structure that holds the individual assets and rights

Based on our review we will provide the details of our review together with suggestions as to how best to proceed and advise on how to implement any changes if they are deemed necessary for the safeguarding of the corporate and trust structure and the protection of the underlying assets.
