Dynasty or Perpetual Trusts

When it is important to preserve your wealth a Dynasty, or Perpetual Trust, may be a good solution.


A Dynasty Trust is -

  • A tool to preserve wealth for successive generations
  • A legal method to minimize Federal estate, gift, and inheritance taxes
  • A strategy for asset protection from creditors, judgments, and divorces
  • Irrevocable at document signing or upon death


Dynasty Trusts are most beneficial when -

  • Your family has a high net worth
  • You have cash, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and insurance policies to preserve
  • You want to benefit future generations in a way that works in concert with your estate plan
  • You want peace of mind knowing assets are secure and goals are fulfilled
