You have spent substantial amounts of time and energy creating your wealth. However, planning how your wealth is to be distributed after your death likely receives little attention. It is common for people to consider preparing a will only when a personal life event brings the topic to the fore - the death of a family member or close friend, a personal health issue or overseas travel. The emotional stress and time constraints associated with such circumstances are avoidable if you plan your estate today.
Wills and estates expert Andrew Simpson shares his extensive knowledge to help answer your questions and prepare for the future today. From planning your retirement, to writing a will, to distributing your assets, each aspect of estate planning is highlighted by informative case studies, practical examples and easy-to-read explanations.
