Laws governing the formation of trusts in Belize
The Belize Trust Act of 1992 is one of the most modern laws regarding trusts to date. This law, as well as other governing laws in Belize, was drafted by observing the English common law. It is similar to the laws applicable in other offshore jurisdictions like Cayman or Panama.
Belize trusts offer a high degree of asset protection and these types of instruments may be used for asset protection and management or for asset/wealth growth due to the many tax advantages in the jurisdiction.
According to law, the trust is incorporated by the settlor who entrusts the trustee (another individual or company) to manage the assets that will be used by a third party (the beneficiary).
