Michael heyworth, director and one of the four founders at Trust Corporation International, is a name to know for complex trust issues. He is the lead director for a number of family office relationships, investors in private equity, property and managed portfolios. His work is also reliably multi-jurisdictional. Heyworth manages a portfolio of complex structures including offshore trusts, limited partnerships, PTCs and crossborder asset holding structures for high net worth individuals and their family offices. Heyworth’s had another busy year: some highlights include an intricate restructuring mandate, involving ‘a complex set of assets and creditors, the latter including a third party bank and settlor.’ He’s also been implementing advice on the April 2017 non-dom tax reforms as well as undertaking ‘the restructuring of corporate vehicles owning UK residential property, terminating settlements and the establishment of new trust and corporate vehicles’. The Guernsey-based former solicitor is also a main point of contact for litigation against former trustees or third parties. His UHNW clients include resident non-doms, families and family offices. Clients particularly value his insight on commercial matters in the fields of investment management, property and litigation. Heyworth perceives a shift away from tax mitigation as the main focus of planning, and towards tax transparent succession planning for international families.
