A trust allows a third party (the trustee) to hold and administer assets on behalf of a beneficiary. Benefits of trusts include the ability to control your wealth, protect your legacy and keep assets private and out of probate. There are many ways to set up a trust, and our advisors are happy to help you identify the right choice for you.
Yes! No matter the size of your estate, a will is important because it allows you to clearly communicate your wishes for your loved ones and your assets. Without a will, the state will decide how and to whom your assets are distributed and your survivors may not receive what you would like them to. Our advisors will help you make sure your wishes are clearly and effectively expressed.
