What is asset preservation/asset structuring?

When creating an estate plan, the primary goal is to ensure that your beneficiaries receive the maximum inheritance possible. To do so, there are various actions you may take. To start, one of the most important documents you can create to preserve assets are trusts. Essentially, trusts give those who create them the right to preserve private placement insurance, foreign annuities, family limited partnerships, and more.

What is an asset protection plan?

Essentially, an asset protection plan is something that can help an individual minimize his or her financial exposure by ensuring that they are prepared for the future.
