Finding The Best Asset Protection Consultant


It’s not always that easy to find an asset protection consultant, especially because you might not know where to start.

There are several important aspects to take into account, when finding someone to help you with asset protection. It all comes down to how your structure is going to work, because there are always several different people involved.

In the case of a trust, you always have someone who:

  • Educates about and teaches you how everything works, the advantages involved and how to use your structure.
  • Plans everything, how the whole structure is going to look like, depending on what kinds of assets need protection.
  • Write the trust agreement.
  • Finalizes the trust (sometimes it’s registered in a government database, other times not).
  • Acts as a licensed trustee of the trust (manages the trust).

As we both know, this process probably seems more confusing than you anticipated. That is why it’s always best to have someone involved, who can organize and put everything together for you. It’s like having a complicated jigsaw puzzle. If you don’t put all the pieces in the right places, it doesn’t look right. The same is true for a trust. If it’s not put together in the right way, it’s not going to work. In the case of not having all pieces where they should be, then it’s literally like having a piece of toilet paper, which is not going to help you.

On the other hand, a properly structured trust is like having an armored truck. No matter what you throw at it, the truck won’t budge, and you can drive through any kind of rough terrain with it.

But it doesn’t help knowing all this, if you can’t put together all the pieces yourself. That is what an asset protection consultant helps you with. Not only structuring the trust right, but making sure to have all the right people on the team, when putting everything in place.

One scenario is getting some trustee to take care of your trust. A different one is having a good and reliable company to do the job. What makes that easier, is of course having someone taking care of finding all the right people and providers for you. Instead of you spending your valuable time, studying complicated legal documents and years of hard work doing everything yourself.
