The need to take active steps to protect assets and wealth, as well as concerns with the overall effectiveness of the steps taken, are not new. Arguably however, those concerns have never been taken more seriously by a greater number of people than they are currently. To many people asset protection means being able to control assets or have access to assets which the person does not legally own, such that if the person is successfully sued these assets will not be available to be used to recompense the successful plaintiff. However this is only one aspect of a comprehensive asset protection strategy. This book explores the nine foundations to achieving best practice asset protection, deeply exploring the often used mantra that protection is better than any cure.
