Foundation is a versatile alternative to traditional trusts. With its unique blend of private wealth and charitable investment possibilities, foundations offer exceptional asset protection and strategic advantages.
We specialize in Dutch Foundations (Stichtings), which provide unparalleled flexibility, making them perfect for various business, investment, and philanthropic endeavours. A Stichting is unique among legal entities as it does not have an owner (no shareholders) and is often referred to as an “orphan” entity.
The only governing body prescribed by law is its board. Unlike traditional entities, a Stichting operates as “purpose capital,” with funds designated for specific objectives, ensuring a clear and dedicated focus.
One of the most significant benefits of a foundation lies in the separation of ownership and control. By positioning the foundation as the end-owner of a business or investment structure, our clients can leverage this distinction to optimize their wealth management.
Moreover, Dutch Foundations (Stichtings) have no shareholders, offering a high degree of privacy and discretion. Client rights established through well-crafted constitution which provides confidence and security in the foundation’s governance and operations.
Whether it is safeguarding family wealth for future generations, supporting meaningful charitable initiatives, or delving into innovative investment opportunities, our Dutch Foundation solutions are designed to meet the needs of a client.
