Trusts, Property and Estate Planning

Prosperity across generations

Too often the question of property rights only comes up when there is an event that changes irrevocably the status of a marriage, a family or a business. That event may be either divorce, death or dissolution of a partnership. At that time the succession process and determination of property rights so often leads to conflict. Wealth creation happens in one generation only to be dissipated by the next. What can we do now to ensure that our hard work today continues to work for us in our golden years and that it provides a legacy for generations to come?

Estate Planning

How do you organise your property affairs to ensure that the ownership works to your best advantage and it will smoothly transition to your successors?  Legal structures such as companies, wills, and trusts can be used to maximise the potential of existing assets. Investments and assets acquired today can be organised early enough to deliver value across generations.  Trusts are used to preserve assets, to protect assets against liabilities, and to provide continuous support for stated beneficiaries. This is what the firm offers to all their clients whether single, young family, established family or corporate.
