Overview Curaçao Foundation
An ultra-flexible estate planning vehicle for diverse holdings and portfolio investment activities, which also rivals the Swiss Foundation for ICOs.
The Curaçao Private Foundation (also known as “SPF” or “Stichting Particulier Fonds” in Dutch) is a private foundation that was introduced to offer an alternative to the Anglo Saxon Trust. Its minimum of formalities, flexibility and privacy make the SPF an essential freedom tool, and an attractive alternative to the Swiss Foundation for ICPO and TGE purposes.
