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 less worthy life than the parent or grandparent envisioned or intended.
Or, the trust beneficiary who suffers from “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.
As most families and heirs of means have worked with very skilled and competent estate and financial planners, the negative impact of receiving wealth most likely has little to do with the legal or financial tools that were / are in place. Instead, studies show, and common sense confirms, these unfortunate consequences are the result of these wealth related issues being left unaddressed from a “non-financial” perspective. Take a look at the daily tabloids and you will unfortunately see the negative consequence that ill prepared human and intellectual capital can have on material wealth.
Are you worried that your heirs’ lives may be adversely affected by the wealth which they are intended to receive?

Perhaps you have accepted the privileged role of trustee or estate fiduciary for a friend or family member.
You now find yourself responsible for the proper oversight and administration of the trust assets, guided by oft confusing terms of a trust document filled with “legalese”.
You are held to a legal “fiduciary” responsibility to administer the trust correctly while acting in the best interest of the commonly conflicting interests of the current and remainder trust beneficiaries.
As if life wasn’t busy enough, these trustee responsibilities are added to your regular personal and professional obligations.
