licensed with the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) to provide Trust services
which comprises acting as trustee, providing trust administration services as well as

LEAVING PRECEPTS FOR FAMILIES

Trust structuring is highly bespoke and can apply in many circumstances, from a simple declaration of trust over an asset like company shares to complex structures involving trusteeship of highly valuable assets situated in several jurisdictions.

Many business owners and families count on us to ensure their legacy plans are being carried out accordingly. We are licensed to serve as a Professional Trustee to look after our clients’ monies and ensure the assets are distributed to their chosen beneficiaries in a manner our clients have planned for.

Our Trust clients also include families who are not served by public trustee due to their estate sizes.

FAMILY TRUSTS


Family harmony is always at the heart of estate and succession planning as it protects vulnerable beneficiaries. Precepts Trustee Ltd offers a variety of highly customised Trust solutions to meet the differing family needs of our clients. Setting up a Family Trust can protect your hard earned monies from fraudsters and scammers targeting the elderly as well as provide financial security for your loved ones upon reaching an appropriate age. In some instances, special needs beneficiaries are the primary concerns of our clients.

FINANCIAL ASSETS TRUSTS


With our Financial Assets Trusts, clients can be assured that their assets are safeguarded for only times of needs. Taking into account Life insurance policies funded through a life, endowment or term insurance plan, we assist in structuring a trust to protect assets against liabilities by beneficiaries. With our Financial Assets Trusts, clients can not only name multiple layers of beneficiaries, they can also ensure that assets will be used exclusively for the intended beneficiaries, protected from creditors

STANDBY TRUSTS


Standby Trusts are a popular solution for clients who do not want to put in a significant capital into the Trust as yet but would like to establish a system that remains passive while the clients are alive and not mentally incapacitated. It is a trust where clients still remain in complete control of the assets, including its liquidity, until the triggering event of death or mental incapacity happens. Our Standby Trusts provide affordable yet flexible and dynamic succession planning.

PROPERTY TRUSTS


Setting up a Property Trust is a solution for clients who want to purchase another property for their minor beneficiaries using cash. Another instance where clients require such structure is when they are not comfortable with 'decoupling'. With the right trust structure, application of stamp duty will be assessed based on beneficiaries' profile.

CHARITABLE TRUSTS


The growing affluence and economic progress bring about a new era of generosity to give back to society. Philanthropy is increasingly a part of life as Singapore is now ranked seventh in the World Giving Index 2018. Our clients can now set up a Charitable Trust/ philanthropic structures so that their chosen charity organisation(s) will continue to receive support over a long period of time or even in perpetual. Philanthropic structures such as a foundation can also be set up. Grow your legacy through long-term charity contributions from your assets.

PRIVATE TRUST COMPANIES


For clients who prefer not to transfer the ownership of assets to the Trustee (as in the case of a traditional trust), Precepts Trustee Ltd. can also assist in setting up a special purpose vehicle called a Private Trust Company (PTC) where family members can be the shareholders as well as the directors to maintain direct control over trust assets.

HIGH NET-WORTH
