Wealth structuring can take many forms using a variety of legal entities or arrangements, the most common of which are trusts, foundations and companies.


Trusts are an ideal way to help you and your family manage and preserve your family wealth:

  • They protect the spendthrift, as some would see it, from their own shortcomings by placing the control and management of funds under an independent trustee with full authority to make decisions as to how and when such funds may be spent to provide benefits.
  • They can be used to assist the disabled by providing and/or enhancing their independence, well-being and financial security.
  • When it comes to estate settlement, trusts can help avoid the time, expense and publicity of probate.
  • Trusts can be used to transfer wealth efficiently from one generation to the next.
  • By “generation skipping” with funds going from, for instance, grandparents to grandchildren, trusts can help solve family inheritance issues.
  • Until Courts recognise pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreements they do assist in protecting beneficiaries from some of the vagaries of the justice system.


Odin Fiduciaries Limited has experience establishing and providing ongoing management to Isle of Man foundations which can be used as an alternative to a trust or company. The benefits of a foundation are:

  • It has its own legal personality
  • Understood by civil law jurisdictions
  • It is capable of holding assets in its own name, and is able to sue and be sued
  • It can have non charitable or charitable objectives
  • Beneficiaries do not need to be named on establishment
