Whether you seek to support noble initiatives, safeguard a family business, secure real estate holdings, or protect treasured artwork, DIFC Foundations offer an innovative and versatile solution.
Benefits of setting up a DIFC Foundation:
In 2018, the DIFC (Dubai International Financial Centre) unveiled the DIFC Foundation regime. This groundbreaking initiative serves as a versatile wealth structuring option, catering to both Muslim and Non-Muslim expatriates residing in the UAE, as well as international investors seeking to safeguard their assets and family businesses within the UAE.
DIFC Foundation serves as an effective tool for succession and legacy planning, facilitating the seamless transfer of assets while minimizing the risk of family disputes. It also provides crucial protection against creditors and divorce claims, shielding assets from external threats. Furthermore, the DIFC Foundation offers a valuable solution to mitigate forced heirship rules, granting individuals greater control over their wealth and inheritance decisions.

7. Mitigates forced heirship rules:
