The main and greatest difference is obvious. When an investment is made in your own name, you are responsible for that investment, not only for the profits and losses, but also for the taxes, rights, and obligations derived from the investment regardless if you invest in securities, businesses, or other types of assets. This is not always the same result when you invest through a corporation or another legal structure. It’s important to note here that the majority of corporations or legal structures are not necessarily created or established to avoid or reduce investment risks, taxes, or liabilities for the owners or shareholders, even in those cases where irrevocable trusts or corporations in foreign jurisdictions are used. Therefore, it’s important to consult with an expert attorney that really understands the client’s needs and culture, and able to create a protection plan that fits those needs and culture.
