In this era of the internet and publicly accessible registers, mapping an individual’s asset position has become easier than ever before. Anyone wishing to counter these intrusions for security or privacy reasons can consider asset anonymisation. This is certainly feasible when it is possible to opt for a new structure – such as a foundation or a holding between the shareholder and operating company. However, even when the existing structure needs to be retained, options are still available for the reduction of the transparency of the relationship between shareholders, business and assets, such as funds for joint account and limited partnerships. This requires thorough knowledge of the duty to inform and other regulations, and is often located at the interface between family law and corporate law. Ask us for advice on the options available to you in your specific situation.
