Evolution of Trust Law

Since development of 12th century trust law under jurisdiction of the King of England, trusts have evolved into a fundamental tool used to protect assets.

Modern-day trusts represent contractual arrangements setting forth terms and provisions as to the purpose of the trust and, furthermore, provide for a “trustee” to carry-out the terms and provisions of the trust. A trustee may be a person, such as a family member or professional advisor, or it may be an institution, like a bank or trust company.

Although trust arrangements are becoming ever more popular and experiencing growing demand among financial services organizations, benefits of chartering and operating a trust company are often offset by the expense, risk and burden. However, with FiPar's innovative and creative alternative trust solutions, a variety of financial organizations can now successfully participate in a specialized, complex, prestigious financial market segment without traditional barriers.

FiPar invites you to explore our website to gain an understanding of how FiPar's innovative trust solutions can ensure your success in attracting and managing legacy wealth.
