Our formula "PATEC"

No matter how wealthy you are, your basic needs come down, financially speaking, to the acronym PATEC, or Privacy, Asset Protection, Tax Optimization, Estate Planning, Cash or Liquidity.


This is not about hiding money in order to evade taxes; this is about protecting family and family wealth from predators’ sights. The challenge today is to provide privacy in a legal and compliant manner.

Asset Protection

Wealthy individuals are a target for crime and litigation. When privacy is no longer sacrosanct, personal wealth is at greater risk from litigation claiming product or professional liability. A solution is required that provides asset protection even though the existence of the assets are known to third parties.

Tax optimization

In today’s world, the consequences for evading taxes or wrongly reporting returns are draconian. At the same time the tax burden may be growing in your country. A solution must be found that allows easy reporting and legal ways to optimize taxes.

Estate Planning

Probate can take up to two years for heirs to get access to funds. Forced heirship rules, difficult family situations and complex inheritance laws, in general, may require special solutions with an appropriate holding structure.

Cash or Liquidity

To meet the cash needs of your heirs, for business, lifestyle, educational or other reasons, we can provide life cover of up to $100 million. This makes insurance the ideal holding structure, either as a stand-alone solution or in combination with other holding structures.
