Preparing an action plan is a good way to help you to reach your objectives in life. We strongly encourage everyone to take the necessary steps to ensure their estate, accumulated during years of hard work, will be wound up in an orderly manner, in the hands of the right people.

We would welcome the opportunity to work with you to design, execute and monitor your estate plan.

Estate planning is a dynamic process. What you wish today might change in the future. Also, the instruments currently available may become obsolete, or other more suitable solutions may be available in the future.

We can present and discuss with you the below options. For some clients, one may suffice but for others, a combination could be optimal. We will assist you in making an informed decision by presenting each alternative's benefits, costs and drawbacks.

  • Will
  • Trusts
  • Foundations
  • Private placement life insurance

Naturally, the choice of the solution(s) is just a small part of the process. The jurisdiction(s) in which these solutions are employed is equally important. The professionals and other stakeholders engaged (trustees, insurance company, investment advisors, asset managers, etc) also need close consideration.

Estate planning is necessary for everyone, and can be a very complex exercise. Those who have a plan can ensure that events unfold as they would like. Alternatively, ones estate can fall into the hands of someone you do not want to pass your wealth onto. Furthermore, tax, expenses and inflation can erode your estate if appropriate plans are not made in advance.
