Have you ever considered establishing a trust to protect and transfer your assets ?

What is a trust?

A trust is a fiduciary arrangement through which a person (the settlor) transfers the legal title of his/her assets to another person or company (the trustee) who/which holds the assets on behalf of the beneficiary/beneficiaries. The legal title of the assets is vested in a trustee while the beneficial ownership is being vested in the beneficiary/beneficiaries. The trustee is responsible for managing and administering those assets in the best interests of the beneficiary/beneficiaries.
