The COVID-19 outbreak has created great disruption and uncertainty not only with regards to our ability to survive this pandemic but also what happens in a post COVID scenario. How will this affect us and our continued capacity to provide a livelihood for ourselves and for our families. This is a cataclysmic event of global proportions not experienced in the post second world war era and has so far shown how it is no longer possible to take anything for granted and has highlighted just how fragile our eco system is when we are no longer free to congregate and socialise with one another. Aside from the direct repercussions that COVID has so far had on our personal lives, it has also had a tremendous impact on commerce driving home the importance of having robust business continuity plans in place and an agile structure to rapidly react to changing circumstances.
Now is therefore a good time to take stock of one’s current financial position and plan for the future, to minimise the impact that the current and future global game changing events can have both on one’s business as well as personal assets accumulated over the years.
At ARQ Group, we take a 360-degree view by integrating professionals from different disciplines – lawyers, accountants, tax specialists and economists to create and manage bespoke and multi-jurisdictional structures to meet the individual needs of our clients.
Maltese legislation supports a thriving legal framework that focuses on trusts and foundations that may be used for different purposes. Our specialised legal team has an in-depth understanding and experience in the field of discretionary trusts and foundations that can have multiple purposes built around but not necessarily exclusive to the preservation of wealth, estate planning and managing succession, considering also any opportunities to optimise on any resulting taxation. ARQ are licensed to provide specialised trustee and fiduciary services with the highest level of protection, security and confidence. We can provide the complete tax and legal framework to structure your assets to the best advantage based on your individual requirements.
You have worked hard to accumulate assets which you want to protect for future generations. Our team offers impartial advice based on several years’ experience in this area and which can be further augmented by outsourced specialist advisors that can be brought in by the trustees to advise on specialised matters or to provide additional, highly specialised services that may be required such as wealth management, pension and investment advisory. Our clients often require an international strategy and we are well connected globally to provide a cohesive service.
Our team are committed to finding the best practical and bespoke solutions in the long-term interests of our clients. For further assistance, kindly contact David Borg on [email protected]. Your future in good hands.
