FACILITATION OF INTERGENERATIONAL WEALTH TRANSFERS
In the event you or a loved one passes away, it is best to be prepared. Our Wealth Advisors can help with completing various transfers of wealth prior to or at end-of-life so that you and your family can focus on what matters most.
A revocable living trust (personal trust) is a legal agreement by which you transfer ownership of your property into a trust. You act as your own trustee or appoint a professional corporate trustee. The trustee has the responsibility to manage and distribute the assets in the trust according to its provisions.
