Professional Protector Services
It is important to have an independent professional Protector as part of your asset protection plan. Appointing a trustee you have never met working from a foreign jurisdiction is often a daunting task. As professional Protectors we act as your eyes and ears ensuring your appointed trustee adheres to the terms of their appointment. Look at it as a watchdog service that gives you peace of mind. We have experience that spans nearly 30 years in trustee administration services and therefore offer a proven track record in providing oversight in accordance to the terms of the trust deed. We have in-depth experience of trust litigation matters and can give comfort to both professional advisor and client alike that the duties of a Protector as provided for in trust deeds will be performed only with the best interests of the settlor and beneficiaries in mind.
While we specialise in trusts established in the Cook Islands, we can accept appointment as a Protector of trusts domiciled in other jurisdictions.

I have worked with Ora Trust and Puai Wichman since 2007. During these years I have found Ora Trust and Puai Wichman to embody integrity, honesty, and professionalism in all matters. They resolutely stand by their clients during good times and bad. It is a relationship that has grown valuable with time and over the years I have come to realize that working with Ora and Puai is like working with family. It is a positive and sound experience.
Robert MathewsAsset Protection, California, USA
I am a USA tax and trust attorney specialising in international and cross border tax and estate planning for 30 years.
I have had the pleasure to work with Puai since we started our careers together in 1993. We are both the same age and not only have we worked together on many professional endeavors but also we have developed a strong bond and friendship. I have gotten to know his family and him mine as well and I consider myself a lucky, fortunate person to have been able to develop such a strong professional and personal bond with Puai over the last several decades.
Puai is honest, hard working and sincere. He and his team always handle my clients with the utmost professionalism and respect. I cannot recommend Puai and the Ora team highly enough.
