Family Office Definition: Foreign Grantor Trust

Foreign Grantor Trust definition:  With a foreign revocable grantor trust, all income and appreciation that occurs while the grantor is still alive is treated as belonging to the grantor and not subject to U.S. taxation. The trustees and administration of the trust may reside in the U.S.; it is the foreign status of the grantor that is key.
