I have a will already – do I need a succession plan?

Yes! Absolutely you do. Many of our clients initially believe that having a will is the only thing that they need to have in place. In fact, many clients also require a solid succession plan for assets during their life time, which often includes the provision of financial support to family members. In turn, this plan needs to be reflected in the provisions of their Will to ensure an equality in the benefits being provided to the beneficiaries (i.e. to ‘balance out’ what the will maker has distributed during their life time).

Having in place a carefully considered succession plan as part of a wealth protection strategy ensures the benefit and control of your assets passes to the right people at the right time. Succession plans can also go one step further, putting controls and restrictions in place to ensure that, when control of the assets changes, they continue to be managed in a way that is both beneficial and constructive in terms of the long term goals which are part of the will makers estate plan.
