Wealth in family . . . a complex equation
Sadly, we all know of those instances where a parent or grandparent has left an inheritance which subsequently deadens the talents and energies of their loved one, and tempts them to lead a life less worthy than the one their parent or grandparent envisioned for them.
Too often, inherited wealth results in “affluenza”, manifesting itself thru a false sense of entitlement and the lack of purposeful pursuits needed to cultivate self-esteem, self-worth, motivation, self-confidence, and/or personal identity.
Why is this?
Studies show, and common sense confirms, these unfortunate consequences are the result of heirs being ill prepared in the areas of maximizing their human and intellectual capital, rather that lacking the financial tools necessary to become good stewards of their inheritance.
Are you worried that your heirs’ lives may be adversely affected by the wealth which they are intended to receive?
Are you a trust beneficiary caught in a struggle over your inherited wealth?

Assistance Serving as Trustee or Estate Fiduciary
Perhaps you’ve accepted the privileged role of trustee or estate fiduciary for a friend or family member. As if life wasn’t busy enough, these responsibilities are added to your regular personal and professional obligations.
You now find yourself responsible for the proper oversight and administration of the trust assets, guided only by a trust document filled with “legalese.” In your new role, you are held to a legal “fiduciary” responsibility to administer the trust correctly, while balancing the commonly conflicting interests of the current and remainder trust beneficiaries.
Overwhelmed? We can help.
