Estate Planning 101: More than just a Will!

A practical guide to incapacity, death and the importance of proper and tailored estate planning for your clients and their loved ones.

Gone are the days when a simple will was all that was required to transfer wealth from one generation to the next on the death of a person. With our changing family landscapes, our ageing population and the complexities of business and asset structures, more sophisticated estate plans are required to ensure that our client’s objectives are met in the most practical and financially appealing way.

  • The different types of testamentary trusts and their benefits
  • Superannuation and its importance in estate planning
  • Trusts and companies – holistic estate planning
  • Will challenges and ways to attempt to prevent a successful claim
