We Guarantee Sustainability, Minimize Risk, And Professional Management
TRUST FUND ESTABLISHMENT AND MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Over the years, organizations, schemes, and high net worth individuals have handled death benefits casually, either in-house, i.e., in the HR/ Finance department for organizations, within the scheme for retirement benefits, and with no written Will or Trust in place for individuals.
The children suffer because of the lack of a structured system for receiving school fees, medical care, and maintenance assistance. This method of managing children’s funds is only viable when there are few cases to deal with. However, when there are many beneficiaries, the risks for organizations, schemes, and individuals increase.
To guarantee sustainability, minimize risk and professional management, we recommend that organizations, schemes, and high net worth individuals consider outsourcing the management of death benefits (Group-life, Personal Accident, Retirement benefits) and other assets into a Trust Fund.
