What is Asset Protection?

There are people out there who cleverly use our legal system to devise ways to find and seize your money and property. We call them professional takers. This is the reality: professional takers hunt down and corner people with unprotected assets.

While some of the professional takers may be obvious such as creditors, the simple truth is most of them are a little closer to home. Families may not talk to each other for years over money. Business partners have completely bankrupted companies to stop one another from getting at assets. Opportunistic employees have sued companies over small, insignificant things only to come up with a big pay day. Even if you have the best intentions you are bound to meet professional takers and frivolous lawsuits in your lifetime.

Trustmakers works to create ways to stop them in their tracks by making it too difficult and too expensive to take your assets.

What we do is legal, time-tested, and it works!

Simply stated, Asset Protection keeps your valuable assets (business, savings, house, cars, stocks, bonds, etc.) from creditors—legitimate or otherwise—that want to legally steal them from right under your nose. As you look through the world of Asset Protection, you may find a maze of related topics.

Buyer beware, we have all heard this statement before, but it’s never been more appropriate in the world of asset protection. Read more

While it is true, there are many ways to set up asset protection plans, it is important to use extreme caution when navigating through the options and possibilities.

So how does asset protection work?

Rule 1: What you don’t own can’t be taken from you. If that sounds like a difficult subject, it is. To help explain, the wealthy control everything and own nothing. It’s the same way wealthy people and movie stars have been doing it for years. With Trustmakers, this is where the important distinction comes in: We use time-tested, entity formations, like Limited Partnerships and Trusts to protect your assets.

What are Limited Partnerships and Trusts?

Very simply they are artificial persons that are separate from you. Since they are separate from you, then you do not own what is in them, but you do control what is in them. But that’s not the whole story. Picking the right jurisdiction, knowing how to formulate a plan that’s best for you and to apply the technology to make it all work together may take multiple entity structuring. Let Trustmakers be your guide.

Rule 2: No country in the world automatically recognizes US judgments. You are probably thinking you have to move your assets offshore. 95% of the time your assets will remain in the US or your place of domicile.

"What is asset protection? If you want the technical answer, it's the practice of taking very specialized steps to minimize or eliminate the risk of creditors or other claimants from being able to find and take your assets. Plain and simple: it's keeping others from taking your stuff...ANY of it!"

- Rob Lambert, Chairman of Trustmakers Financial Services

Trustmakers was born out of the idea that regular people need proper Asset Protection at an affordable price. Protecting assets has always been thought of as something for the super rich. That was before contingent lawyers and their frivolous lawsuits. Trustmakers brings the same time-tested technology until recently, reserved for the super rich. It is now available to you at an affordable price.

We navigate you through the many concepts, ideas, traps, misconceptions, and blatant wrong notions. We will debunk all of the myths. Due to the wide variety of asset classes and asset vehicles, there may seem to be an infinite number of possibilities. The task of figuring out which would be best for you can be somewhat daunting. We will take this seemingly complicated landscape and make it simple and easy to comprehend. The reality is that many techniques are incomplete, critically flawed, and just plain bad advice. At Trustmakers we will sort out fact from fiction. You can sleep at night with the confidence that no Trustmakers plan has ever been pierced.

To gain a good footing on how the best process will work for you, you need a brief explanation of the rules of protecting your assets.

So how is Trustmakers different from other providers?

All we do is Asset Protection. Remember, whatever money you have is all you have and all you’ve worked for. We believe that anyone with any assets has a clear and present danger. Protecting your nest egg is not to be taken lightly. You need a very specialized company with a world-renowned reputation whose credibility cannot be compromised. A company that’s not on a commission hunt for your assets. Our fees are the same if you have just stared accumulating wealth or you’re in the mega rich category. We specialize in entity formations that are carefully crafted to fix together like the pieces of a puzzle

Many companies offer corporations, limited liability companies, and trusts, etc. We never limit our options for implementing a completely bulletproof plan. We are experts at using technology to craft whatever is necessary to customize a plan for you. This is where our experience pays off. Rob Lambert, (Rob Lambert Bio) founder and CEO has spent the better part of a lifetime developing systems and technology to build a bulletproof vest around your assets. He has creatively developed language and carefully crafted documents that will pass muster in any court in the land.

The procedures we use are quite complex while the rules remain simple.

This is not something you can or should do on the cheap. This is also not something for a general practitioner. This is truly a specialized service brought to you out of the same technology that the super rich pay $30,000.00 plus for.

Asset Protection and Estate planning

Asset protection and estate planning are extremely important life events. While both go together hand and hand they are separate from each other. They share a common thread of life that says anything can happen at any time. We have all heard, treat each day as a gift because you never know what’s going to happen. Asset protection and Estate planning scream out at you and say:

You have got to act this moment, not this day or month, but this moment.

By implementing a properly crafted Trustmakers asset protection plan, you can legitimately put a significant portion of your assets out of the reach of judgment creditors and still retain complete control over these protected assets.
