Leave a lasting legacy

It's never too early to think about where, and to whom, you want your wealth to go after you're gone – and in the most tax-efficient way possible. Whether you're in or near retirement, we’ll consider your goals and your wishes for family and future generations, so you can build on the legacy you’ve already started.

Transferring Your Wealth

We will work with you as you translate your estate plan into a road map for how you pass on your assets while incorporating your wishes for your children, grandchildren and future generations.

What's your vision?

  • Besides immediate family, is there anyone else who should benefit from your wealth?
  • How and when should your heirs receive bequests?
  • How will you cover medical and potential care costs as you and your spouse age?
  • Do you want to give a portion to charity or other causes you support?
  • Do you need to designate money for specifics like your child or grandchild's education?
  • Do any of your children or grandchildren have special needs or circumstances that require more support?
  • Is there a family business and a clear plan for succession?

Protecting Family Wealth

Trusts can be designed to mimic ownership while protecting assets from creditors, predators or divorce.

Dynasty Trust

A long-term trust created to pass assets across generations while protecting the beneficiaries from any future transfer taxes and creditors. 

Grantor Retained Annuity Trust (GRATs)

An irrevocable trust designed to allow you to protect future appreciation of property from transfer taxes.

Spousal Lifetime Access Trust (SLATs)

An irrevocable trust established by one spouse to benefit the other. The goal is to retain spousal access while removing the trust property from the estate.

Why is an estate plan important?

A great estate plan should tell your story — the story you want told if you’re not around to tell it.
