“Death is not the end. There remains the litigation over the estate” Ambrose Bierce
Have you given any thought to your estate plan? Although it might not be your priority at the moment, it is never too early to start thinking about the legacy that you will leave behind when you pass away. An estate plan is an important part of your overall financial plan and we can help you to create an estate plan that will allocate your resources effectively.
At a very basic level, your estate plan is essential to ensure that your family will not have issues sorting out your affairs when you pass away. An estate that is left in disarray results in confusion and will cause your family and loved ones a lot of stress, especially when they are already dealing with your death. Also, if you are not clear about the allocation of your assets it could result in control being taken by the government and your wealth not being distributed the way that you would like.
However, when you look above and beyond the basic necessity of having an estate plan, there is also the potential of your legacy to consider. You could pass along your wealth in a way that would secure your family’s future or have a significant positive effect on a cause that you believe in, such as your favourite wealth. It will give you peace of mind to know that when you pass away, the wealth that you built over your lifetime will go to making the world a better place.
