Belize Foundations

Foundations are a great alternative to a Trust. If assigning a Trustee to manage your assets leaves you feeling a little uncomfortable then a Foundation is the right solution. A Foundation is considered a juristic person or an independent legal personality in it's own right, allowing you the founder, to have direct control of the assets for your lifetime. The fact that the Foundation is an independent legal entity means it has ownership of its own assets. The Foundation itself can purchase and hold any kind of asset, and those assets along with the liabilities of the Foundation, are separate and distinct from those of the founder. The assets transferred into a Foundation not only remain 100% in control of the founder, but the founder may also be the beneficiary, council member or protector of the Foundation itself.

Global Capital Protection recommends Belize as the jurisdiction of choice for Foundations. Belizean law provides better protection for Foundations as opposed to Trusts as it sets limits to legal claims against the founder. The maintenance fees on a Belize Foundation are comparatively low, and being there is no trustee in a Foundation, there are no Trustee fees, which can prove to be expensive.
