How you protect your personal wealth is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make.
When it comes to financial security for you and your family, pre-packaged solutions just aren’t good enough.
You need a thoughtful and thorough approach to estate planning that merges your personal, financial and philanthropic goals. And it needs to be flexible, because life is anything but predictable.
You’ve worked hard to be successful and to make sure you can enjoy retirement. But is your legacy set up so that it won’t leave your heirs struggling with hefty estate taxes? We can look at your portfolio and suggest ways to reposition assets that can help the people you care about keep more of the inheritance you left them.
Do you want to increase your death benefit amount? Already used up or don’t want to use your lifetime gift tax exemptions or your gift tax annual exclusions? You might just want to be able to use your cash instead of tying it up in insurance premiums. We can take a look at a variety of financing strategies that will get you the coverage you want with the flexibility you need.
Want to turn your lifetime gifts into an even smarter wealth transfer strategy for you and your beneficiaries? You can leverage those gifts when you buy life insurance — effectively reducing the size of your taxable estate and the corresponding estate taxes. We’ll work with you to decide if leveraged gifting could benefit your estate planning strategy.
Maximize your legacy by minimizing the potential for estate and gift taxes through a trust. A trust also helps keep your assets from being stuck in probate — and your heirs from having to deal with the related costs, delay and publicity. We can take a detailed look at your specific situation to find or create the type of trust that works best for you.
Have a cause that’s near and dear to your heart? Now’s the time to think about leaving a charitable gift to your favorite nonprofit. Not only do you get to support something you believe in, you could avoid higher taxes on income, capital gains and dividends. We can work with you to craft a charitable planning strategy that’s a win-win.
