    The Importance of Estate Planning at Strategic Financial Solutions

    Knowing your lifetime of hard work building your wealth are being looked after when you’re gone provides great peace of mind. Estate planning can often be a complex topic to broach, but it is crucial to ensure your wealth and assets are passed on as per your wishes following your death or incapacity.

    At Strategic Financial Solutions, we understand the unique complexities that come with helping you to create an estate plan and ensuring your wishes are met. In conjunction with your estate planning lawyer or legal representative, we look at inheritance planning, life insurance, superannuation and tax implications to ensure your wealth is protected according to your intentions.

    Smart estate planning also ensures that when you die or become unable to manage your affairs personally, those who have responsibility for you and your assets know what you want them to do and can ensure your wishes are followed through.

    There Are Two Aspects To Estate Planning

    The provision of powers (Powers of Attorney) to those who will look after you in the case of incapacity – examples include medical, lifestyle and financial. The choice of a power of attorney who can make legal and financial decisions on your behalf is critical and must be thought through carefully.
    Your Will – A will can sometimes be simple, but in today’s world of blended families, there can often be complications that will require careful consideration. Those with substantial assets may need to consider testamentary trusts within their Wills to add an extra layer of asset protection. These testamentary trusts, which are created on the death of the Will maker, can also help with minimising tax and protecting vulnerable beneficiaries.
