Your advisor is a partner in protecting your wealth

The best advisors share three critical traits.

  • They are skilled biographers who draw out your story — your values, your goals and whom you care about most.
  • They are highly qualified consultants who can help you structure your assets to grow and be enjoyed by the people and things you care about most.
  • They are coaches who help you make the right decisions that align with your goals.

What's your vision for transferring wealth?

  • In addition to your immediate family, consider whether there is anyone else who should benefit from your wealth.
  • Determine how you will cover medical and potential care costs.
  • Do you want to give a portion to charity or other causes you support?
  • Do you need to designate money for specifics like a 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 if so, is there a clear plan for succession?
