Estate planning and legacy planning are a powerful combination: Together they can help to ensure that your assets are distributed as you wish and that your values are passed down through multiple generations.
Many of those who have enjoyed financial success prize the ability to share their wealth with loved ones after they have passed. At Steel Peak, we know the value of estate-planning strategies that allow the efficient transfer of wealth to your heirs. We help clients by:
- Creating an Estate Analysis
- Reviewing existing estate and trust documents
- Recommending and coordinating with an attorney as appropriate
- Managing trust assets
- Reviewing your plan over the years
Wealth and values are inextricably intertwined. While estate planning helps to ensure that your assets are distributed as you wish, legacy planning conveys your core values to future generations.
Legacy planning includes:
- Identifying your values and the legacy you would like to bestow
- Creating a financial philosophy for your family
- Designing strategies to implement that philosophy
- Communicating the philosophy and strategies to your family members
- Implementing strategies and adjusting as necessary
