Safeguarding your legacy beyond borders

Established in the Cook Islands in 1982, Southpac Trust provides comprehensive estate planning and asset protection solutions designed to safeguard your wealth.

For over 40 years, we have been at the forefront of the offshore trust industry, helping our clients protect and grow their wealth.

The Cook Islands

The Cook Islands is widely recognized as the leading asset protection jurisdiction for offshore trust structures and provides extremely favorable conditions for companies and foundations.

Throughout the 1980s Southpac Trust worked with leading attorneys to develop legislation which continues to offer the gold standard in asset protection and wealth preservation today.

Clients seeking high-level protection in a politically stable but geographically remote jurisdiction should consider the Cook Islands as the ideal place for their trust. We offer International Trusts, International Relationship Property Trusts, Limited Liability Companies, International Companies and Foundations in the Cook Islands. We can also offer trust protector services, corporate managers for LLCs, and corporate council members/enforcers for foundations.
