I believe there's a good possibility that much of America, and Planet Earth more broadly, goes to hell in a handbasket in the coming decades. I see the future of Earth as looking something like it does on the SyFy (now Amazon Prime) series 'The Expanse', where a privileged class has all the opportunity, while the masses live a bare existence and climate change has devastated many populated areas. To this end, I was thinking about establishing a family trust, so that my children or future descendants might have money to immigrate to Mars or the Outer Planets if things on Earth get really bad. Elon has a stated goal of getting a trip on BFR to Mars to a cost of approximately $300,000-$500,000, if I remember correctly. The problem I have is that I am not wealthy, and most big investment companies won't even consider administering a trust in an amount under $500,000, which is very far above what I can initially contribute. The company where I have my IRA has literature on trust administrations, and lists pricing tiers by the Millions of dollars under management. A budget option I was able to find is KissTrust | A Smarter Way to Trust, which is run by Eastern Point Trust Company, where people can start building a trust with $25 and no fees at the entry level tier. The catch is that investment options are fairly limited unless one opts for higher tiers of service. Has anyone thought about this? Does anyone have experience in establishing a family trust? Or what services from which institutions might be affordable?
