Considering a Trust in Pre-IPO Planning

01 Feb 2018

Given stock market volatility, favourable conditions for a company’s IPO could vanish quickly thus making careful pre-IPO planning crucial. During the pre-IPO planning stage, most company founders focus on enhancing the company’s performance, meeting with investment bankers and recounting the company’s history and story to prospective investors. One key risk factor often ignored by founders is his or her own family situation. Sofia Shen, Vice President, Maples Fiduciary, explores various factors that should be considered in pre-IPO planning as well as how the use of trusts can benefit both individuals and the company.
