What’s the Delaware difference?


Though several U.S. states have developed trust-friendly legal environments, Delaware is the most established. And was among the first states to provide robust tax and asset preservation benefits for trusts:

Flexible administration


Delaware allows you to designate specific powers for your trustees, such as making investments, deciding when distributions are appropriate or providing administration services. This way, you have the flexibility to choose the individual or institution you think is best for each role.



If privacy is important to you, you can generally keep the particulars of a Delaware trust out of the public record. Delaware does not require trusts to be registered, or that trust grantors or beneficiaries be identified. Nor does it require periodic public accounting of trust assets.

Silent provisions


You may want to hold off telling your beneficiaries about the trust until you think they’re ready. Under your Delaware trust agreement, you have flexibility about when to tell someone they are the beneficiary of a trust.

Enhanced asset protection


Everyone wants to be better prepared for unexpected events. Trust provisions in Delaware may give you stronger protection against claims from creditors and parties in a divorce.

Dynasty trusts


Most states have a limit on how long a trust can last. Your Delaware trust may allow you to benefit multiple generations—and enjoy continued tax-efficient growth—with no termination date.

Potential for modification


Trusts can last a long time, so having the flexibility to change terms and beneficiaries can be valuable. The Delaware legal system is tried, tested and trust-friendly, and may allow for trust modification as your family’s needs evolve.

Favorable tax treatment


Typically, there is no Delaware state income tax on a trust’s income or investment earnings.
