Families often use trusts to transfer wealth from one generation to the next. Special care however needs to be applied where there are international aspects involved, whether it be with respect to the contributor, trustee, beneﬁciaries, or the assets held by the trust. Trowbridge can assist in designing the appropriate trust structure that would be the most tax eﬃcient from an international tax perspective, particularly as it relates to Canadian and US taxation.
