Wealth Management Beyond Legal Traditions: A Study of Foundations vs Trusts (Hong Kong)
Wealth planning, especially succession and legacy issues are extremely private deliberations. Whether it is to preserve family wealth, protect children’s interest, business succession, or to ensure confidentiality, it is fundamentally important to understand that “cookie cutter” solutions will not achieve the desired results.

Come and understand how private foundations fundamentally differ from trusts, when to consider one over the other, and most importantly, how this solution is a unique estate planning tool and when deployed accurately will successfully sustain, enhance and protect your estate.
