The Deed of Trust

One of the key components of the Master Wealth Control asset protection system is the asset protection trust (called the Deed of Trust). This is a new trust that we set up for you – it cannot be a trust that you already have in place for your own purposes. It has a particular set of rules that specifically set it apart for asset protection.

What is a trust?

A Trust is a legal entity which is administered by a Trustee. A Trust cannot act alone – it owns assets, earns income and holds wealth via a Trustee. The Trustee is the person or entity in charge of running the Trust. It can be one or more individuals or a company. All of the wealth belongs to the Trust NOT the Trustee. Trustees can be changed, but the money and assets remain in the Trust. The Trust deed is a document which sets up the Trust. There is no Trust until a Trust deed is prepared and signed by two parties – the “settlor” who is in charge of setting up the Trust and the Trustee who runs the Trust. The Trust deed sets out the rules of the Trust.
