Domestic Trusts often serve privacy, distribution or tax purposes— that is, the assets in the trust grow and a low-income beneficiary pays taxes on the proceeds.
For businesses, professionals and high net worth individuals, offshore trusts provide protection from future creditors. This has been challenged in the courts and remains a complex creditor protection strategy.

Your portfolio should include an appropriate mix of investments. This practice is known as diversification and works on the principle that during various economic cycles, some investments experience a downturn, while others rise.
When you have a properly diversified portfolio, you can participate in the upswings while mitigating the downside and in some cases even take advantage of them.
Investing around the world from a tax sheltered environment enables you to take advantage of opportunities that may not be available were you reside, resulting in increased potential returns while also reducing the overall volatility of your portfolio. In addition the relative low tax collected, the Caribbean is also a major asset for building good returns in comparison to onshore tax rates that exceed 50% in most countries.
