Everyone has an estate. Without an estate plan, you will not have control over what happens to your assets when you die. The best time to plan is early, and we can help you create your estate plan as quickly and painlessly as possible.
Many elements factor into when and how wealth transfer occurs. We’re familiar with the estate tax landscape and how to navigate it to optimize your wealth transfer strategy for your beneficiaries. We can help you understand what type of trust is best for your particular needs.
Have a family business? You may want to keep your business run by family when you pass, or maybe you wish to sell it. We can help you sort through your options and the implications for each so that you have a succession plan that you’re confident in.
How you choose to distribute your assets to your beneficiaries must consider valuation and liquidity of those assets. Our advisors are skilled in how to divide assets equally and fairly to heirs according to your wishes, all while accounting for financial and tax repercussions.
You want a plan that passes the multigenerational test – one that protects and optimizes wealth transfer across generations. This may require diligent future planning and communication with family. We’re here to guide the conversation and ensure you have your bases covered.
We are experienced and equipped to help you account for many different non-traditional estate planning scenarios, including but not limited to:
This may include planning across multiple states or countries that require specialized planning.
This may include single parents, same-sex parents, adoptive parents, or other structures that could impact your estate plan
Abnormally long/short life expectancies, growth/inflation assumptions, other uncommon variable permutations.
We do not judge. We will help you plan how you want or need to.
Creating your estate plan starts with a well-defined financial plan. Building your financial plan first ensures that your decisions are in sync with your overarching financial goals. Using tools such as eMoney’s Decision Center and Estate Flow Chart, we can show you how different financial decisions you may make throughout your life can impact you and your estate.
