Transcript: Estate Planning: When and Why

Speaker: Christopher Pegg, Senior Director for Planning

What’s a will? What’s a trust? How do I talk to my family about it? 

It feels complex, but it doesn’t have to be.

Our goal is to take the success that our clients have already had, and create ways to extend that success moving forward, so that they can see their family benefit from it. 

What we’re really doing is helping build the scaffolding for their family’s future.

And it’s not something you throw in a drawer and dust off years from now. 

It’s a living, breathing document, because when we talk about estate planning strategies, we talk about what will happen over the next year, the next ten years, and the next three generations.

We simply ask, “What do you want to have happen? What do you want your success to translate into?”

And then we build a structure to allow that to happen.

To grow and to change over time as the family does, 

So it’s flexible enough to account for all that life has in store.

Because let’s be honest, life is quite a ride, and we all want our loved ones to live it to its fullest. 

Making that happen doesn’t have to be hard.
