Pedigree Trusts

A Pedigree Trust is a variation of Discretionary Trust and is designed as a means of keeping trust property within a particular family often defined by a direct connection to a particular individual.

In the past such trusts were sometimes created in an attempt to protect assets in the event of a marriage breakdown although it must be recognised that the Family Courts have wide ranging powers to look beyond trust structures when identifying assets that may be more rightly designated marital assets rather than trust assets.

Nevertheless, Pedigree Trusts are useful for a principal setting up such a trust in ensuring that the trust property will remain with thier immediate family.
