  • Cook Islands Trust for Asset Protection

    Many asset protection experts agree that the strongest asset protection in the world is the Cook Islands Trust. The Cook Islands are Located South of Hawaii. It has the strongest asset protection case law history in the world. It is not just a theory but each time it has been tested it has protected the client’s assets; even in two cases where the strongest legal body, the US government, was the plaintiff. (Not that we would intentionally set up asset protection from the US government, so we’re just stating a fact here.) The local court says, “Give me the money.” The trustee who is outside of the local court’s jurisdiction says, “No, not going to.” So client can control day-to-day activities, we establish a limited liability company that is 100% owned by the trust. We establish the LLC i...

Local businessman Norm Mitchell complains that he was never even given a chance to buy the Aitutaki Hotel. Intimidated by the authorities, his business partners are too frightened to appear before the camera. After losing his state job, Matunga turned to carving ukuleles for tourists. But when this failed to bring in enough money he decided to emigrate to Australia. But not all islanders feel the same: after 25 years in a government office, Nani feels liberated by her new job as tourist guide. But the rest of the population struggles to survive without the state wage which was once taken for granted. Produced by ABC Australia Distributed by Journeyman Pictures

Many asset protection experts agree that the strongest asset protection in the world is the Cook Islands Trust. The Cook Islands are Located South of Hawaii. It has the strongest asset protection case law history in the world. It is not just a theory but each time it has been tested it has protected the client’s assets; even in two cases where the strongest legal body, the US government, was the plaintiff. (Not that we would intentionally set up asset protection from the US government, so we’re just stating a fact here.) The local court says, “Give me the money.” The trustee who is outside of the local court’s jurisdiction says, “No, not going to.” So client can control day-to-day activities, we establish a limited liability company that is 100% owned by the trust. We establish the LLC in the Caribbean island of Nevis. The client is the Manager of the Nevis LLC who controls the LLC assets and is the signatory on all accounts. When the “bad thing” happens, you can temporarily give the management of the LLC to the trustee. Now, the trustee is licensed and bonded. By licensed we mean they went through intensive background checks to get a license. By bonded we mean that the funds are insured. Plus we use a 38-year old trust company. So, for client safety and peace of mind, the only time the trustee steps in is when the courts would take the money. So, the question that is asked is, “What would you rather have, a 100% chance of the money being taken by the courts? Or would you rather have a licensed, bonded trustee, who has never taken a client’s money, do what you have paid them to do….protect your money?” When the “bad thing” goes away the string of control – the management of the Nevis LLC – goes back to you and you are back in the driver’s seat with all of your money in-tact. In the meantime, during legal duress, if you have bills, the trustee can pay them for you. You can have the trustee pay a trusted friend or relative who provides money for you, etc. So you still have access to your money…but your enemy-at-law does not. The bottom line is that everything you’ve worked so hard for is safe and secure. The best asset protection the trust provides is for liquid assets held offshore. The US courts has jurisdiction over US bank accounts and real estate. So, you can put real estate in the Nevis LLC that’s owned by the trust…or record a lien against the property payable to the Nevis LLC. Then, when the bad thing happens it’s better to sell real estate that you don’t want to sell…than to lose it all together.
