In 1999, the State of Nevada passed laws which provide for the use of self-settled spendthrift trusts. The laws were strengthened in 2009, providing additional guidance to settlors and advisors. These trusts, also referred to as domestic asset protection trusts, allow a grantor to place assets into an irrevocable trust and remain a beneficiary of that trust.
The state statutes require the use of an independent trustee before distributions can be made to the grantor. The assets are generally secure from the claims of creditors after the statute of limitations of two years (the shortest of all states) from the date of transfer or for an existing creditor, six months after the creditor discovers or reasonably should have discovered the transfer, whichever is the later.
The statute requires the trustee or at least one independent co-trustee to be a Nevada resident, or a Nevada financial institution with trust powers. Alliance Trust Company qualifies as a Nevada financial institution able to serve as an independent trustee.
