  1. Labuan Trusts 

    A Labuan trust is a common-law vehicle which can be used for asset preservation, protection and income distribution, making it one of the primary vehicles for wealth management. The creation of a Labuan trust is generally for an individual (settlor) to give specific property to a third party to be held for the benefit of others, including charities. The Labuan legislation allows the creation of various types of trusts including purpose trusts, charitable trusts; spendthrift or protective trusts; and special trusts.

  2. Labuan Foundations

    Labuan foundations offered by the Centre provide a wealth management solution with legal certainty to cater for the needs of high net worth individuals in the region. Labuan foundations are established either for charitable purpose or private wealth management. Charitable foundations are established for various non-profit or philanthropic purposes which include for relief of poverty, advancement of education and other social economic purposes to benefit the community. Private foundations, on the other hand, are geared towards affluent individuals looking for a civil law vehicle to manage estates and assets for their beneficiaries.
