Past Events Planning 20th Jan 2022, 18:30 to 19:45

Essential Estate Planning

Perhaps the biggest misconception about estate planning is that it is the sole preserve of the wealthy. The reality, however, is that everyone can benefit from an estate plan no matter how much (or how little) they have.

Reasons why an estate plan is important

  • To safeguard your assets for your family (or other beneficiaries)
  • To control how your assets will be passed down
  • To put the right people in charge to act on your wishes

Join financial advisers Chase de Vere and Freeths solicitors, where together we will talk you through some estate planning must-haves and explore a variety of different strategies to protect and manage your legacy.

You will also have the opportunity to put your questions to our financial and legal experts.
