The 3rd Annual Maltese Wealth Management Conference recently took place in Malta on the 17 October in Malta. Dr Max Ganado delivered a presentation on how to use a Maltese private family trust and foundation to structure a family office and protect beneficiaries. As part of his presentation he reviewed two real cases where a family estate was placed into a structure to “hold, develop, sale or divide” and other where a foundation is being proposed for use by various families with a child with a disability. The structures seek to take advantage of concepts such as centralised administration by authorised fiduciaries, the use of segregated cells which are possible in foundations under applicable law, fiscal neutrality and security of continuity and other such features.
