Client profile: A UHNW individual residing in Latin America with wealth accumulated in over 30 years, generated from family business and real estate investments
Challenges: Transferring wealth to multiple generations in a structured and orderly manner
Vistra services provided: Setting up of Irrevocable and Discretionary Trust with British Virgin Islands (BVI) company
Our client, a UHNWI who has accumulated his wealth from family business and real estate investments for over 30 years and was concerned about transferring wealth to his three children (first generation) in a structured, compliant, and orderly manner. Thereafter, each of the children shall have a structure flexible enough for their respective successors.
After thorough consultation with the client and his advisors, we decided that incorporating an Irrevocable and Discretionary Trust will best fit his needs - taking into account tax considerations and succession planning. We then helped the client set up a Trust with an underlying company based in the BVI, which holds investment portfolios consisting of liquid assets and real estate companies.
Due to the excellent and professional experience the client had with Vistra, the Settlor of the Trust decided to contribute additional trust funds to the structure. The first contribution consisted of a real estate property located in New York along with its holding structure. The holding structure is a Limited Liability Company (LLC) from Delaware. After that, additional contributions of real estate properties located in Florida and Texas followed.
Currently, the client is also considering further acquisitions of European real estate, for which Vistra is the client’s first choice to partner with.
Our relationship with the client continues to thrive and is based on trust and confidence. We are now entrusted with the administration of all entities within the client’s structure (BVI, LLCs and Trust). We are proud to be the client’s trusted advisor.
As uncertainty continues to persist in the current environment, UHNWIs are searching for effective ways to ensure lasting legacies for the next generation. Our team of experienced professionals can support you in ensuring that your personal wealth remains as resilient as possible through the changes in the broader economic environment
