The Dutch private foundation is a robust and flexible tool for managing private wealth.
Beneficiaries do not have any interest in the Dutch foundation, whilst the family may retain
control over the autonomous board by various indirect means. If the assets originate from
non-residents exclusively, the use of a Dutch foundation may be very tax efficient.
