Intentionally steward your legacy.

No matter how modest or how sizeable, everyone has an estate. An estate comprises of everything you own. When you pass away your estate will go to whoever you bequeathed it. Taxes and administration costs at death can be significant and may impact your heir’s inheritance if you do not sufficiently plan ahead.

We assist you with:

  • Drafting or reviewing your will.
  • Calculating taxes and costs applicable to your estate on death.
  • Reviewing the liquidity of your estate.
  • Providing recommendations regarding any shortcomings.

Estate Planning not only considers the succession of your wealth but also takes care of debt obligations, unpaid taxes, business liabilities, car loans, mortgages etc.  It provides you ease of mind that your loved ones will not experience unnecessary financial turmoil during difficult times. It provides guidance on how to steward your legacy according to your wishes and instructions. Estate Planning is an ongoing process that should be reviewed and updated as your financial situation changes over your lifetime.

  Let’s discuss how you can ensure your loved ones are well looked after.
