Why Does Creating a Will Feel Overwhelming, and How Can I Simplify It?

Why Does Creating a Will Feel Overwhelming, and How Can I Simplify It?

Unravel the complexities of creating a will or estate planning and discover straightforward strategies to make the process more manageable.


Have you ever pondered over the fate of your hard-earned wealth after you’re gone?

How can you ensure it benefits your loved ones and doesn’t become a source of conflict or loss?

Will and estate planning, an often-overlooked aspect of wealth management, is the key.

Family wealth tends to dissipate over time, and the rapid turnover of the Forbes 400 confirms that inherited wealth is unstable.

For instance, a notable Vanderbilt family reunion in 1973 reportedly did not have a single millionaire among the 120 attendees, despite their forebears being among the richest in America.

Navigating the Pitfalls of Wealth Transfer

It’s a startling fact that 70% of families lose their generational wealth by the second generation, and 90% by the third. This phenomenon can be attributed to several factors, including poor investment decisions, fragmentation of inheritance, and a lack of interest or capability in managing the family fortune among heirs

Wealth Transfer: More Than Just Money

Wealth transfer transcends mere monetary value; it’s about imparting the values and lessons that helped build and sustain this wealth. It’s a chance to ensure your family not only benefits from your fortune but also continues to create wealth through generations.

Key Questions for Effective Wealth Planning:

  1. Legacy and Charitable Goals: What legacy do you wish to leave, and how does charity fit into this vision? Are your family values aligned with these goals?
  2. Equipping Your Family: Is your family prepared to manage inherited wealth?
  3. Financial Transparency: In your absence, can your family easily understand your financial landscape?
  4. Introducing Advisors: Have your family members been introduced to your financial advisors?
  5. Business Succession: Is there a robust plan for business succession?
