A foundation can be an effective planning tool for private wealth, asset protection, charitable reasons and, in some jurisdictions, may be used for commercial purposes.
A foundation shares the characteristics of a trust, in that it does not have shareholders but instead has a founder and beneficiaries. It also has its own legal personality and the ability to enter into contracts in its own right. A foundation is run in accordance with its regulations, by a council as opposed to directors or trustees.
Partnerships are often used as co-investment vehicles to facilitate the acquisition of real estate, private equity or venture capital opportunities for small numbers of investors.
