Find out about the trusts we offer and how to use them
Using a trust with one of our protection policies will make sure that the right people will receive the money, at the right time and usually without inheritance tax liability.
However, there are different types of trust available and it may not always be clear which should be used or the best way of setting it up.
To help you, we have information and forms for the most common types of trusts. To help you further, if your client has a life protection policy with us you can use our new online 'Trustbuilder Tool' to help decide on the right type of trust and complete it online.
It’s really important that you consider whether our trust deeds are suitable for your client’s circumstances before you decide to use them. If you’re in any doubt, please seek specialised legal advice.
