#43 – The 9 Key Principles of Asset Protection

This is a podcast of ‘The 9 Key Principals of Asset Protection’ held on 29 August 2019.

In a sentence, asset protection is often referred to as having sufficient control of assets, such that if an individual is successfully sued these assets will not be available to be used to recompense the successful litigant.

This is however only one aspect of a comprehensive asset protection strategy.

This webinar leverages View’s textbook of the same title to explore the key principles to achieving best practice asset protection, using case study examples to deeply explore a range of issues including:

  1. Optimal use of trust structures for protection
  2. Bankruptcy and family law rules
  3. Interplay of estate planning and superannuation principles
  4. Best practice personal structuring strategies
