Estate and Trusts, unlike other investments, usually have beneficiaries. On the one hand, the estate has to do with wills and plans made for the eventuality of death. On the other hand, trust is central to estate planning. A person who administers an estate holds in trust until the final execution of such estate.

At AFO, we set up a trust-based on the settlor’s instructions. Trust may also be used for the protection of your assets.
