From inheritance tax to the protection of family members to residential care home fees, trusts can be used to protect assets both during lifetime and after death. Trusts have a particular relevance today with more people having second families and the need to balance the competing interests of current spouses and children from a previous relationship.
If you have a disabled child or beneficiary who has lost capacity then a trust can be used to preserve any benefits they are receiving and to protect their inheritance.
