Why Wyoming


Near-perpetual trusts are possible here potentially avoiding transfer taxes for up to 1000 years.

Asset Protection

Wyoming allows broad asset protection by recognizing spendthrift provisions written into trusts, including self-settled trusts where the trust creator is also a beneficiary.


Wyoming privacy laws allow you to keep your personal and trust information out of the public domain.


You don’t have to live in Wyoming to establish or migrate a trust here.  Appointing the Bank of Jackson Hole as your Wyoming sited fiduciary may be all that’s necessary.

Investment Flexibility
