Welcome To Ascendancy
As your wealth grows in time, so do the problems of managing your wealth, with how it is taxed and what happens to it when you die. These problems have been a constant concern for generations.
There is a solution: separation of ownership and control of assets.
Trusts have been used in this way for centuries and in that time the shortcomings of trusts have allowed the courts to successfully attack them. Trusts are a creature of common law used in common law countries, like the United Kingdom.
For as long as trusts have existed, so too in civil law countries have “Foundations”. Foundations take the best features of a company and of a trust and combine them into a vehicle which is uniquely suited to managing, and protecting, both income and assets.
Using a number of other special purpose vehicles together with Foundations, we now provide innovative and effective estate planning which was not hitherto previously available in this jurisdiction.
Ascendancy specialises in Foundations and their many applications. We bring together the knowledge and experience of an in-house team including chartered tax advisors, accountants and barristers together with our partners who are carefully selected for their expertise and reputation.
