Action today can help create the desired legacy, even if the first step is just to create a will.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (PRWEB) March 24, 2015
Convergent Wealth Advisors issues estate planning guidelines and urges action to preserve legacy aspirations. In straightforward, easy-to-understand language, Building A Legacy—An Introduction to Multi-Generational Wealth Planning author Stephanie Zaffos, J.D. highlights how effective estate planning can be designed to create a desired legacy. This primer is part of Convergent’s Live Well series that seeks to broaden the dialogue surrounding wealth management and its impact on living well.
Ms. Zaffos reflects how often and quickly a benefactor’s good intentions may dissipate to future generations when little or out-of-date planning is in place. This primer calls attention to the recent estate planning gaps of high-profile celebrities, revealing important lessons for all.
Ms. Zaffos states “It is easy to put off estate planning. No one likes to think about their mortality. To die without any planning gives all your power to the courts and your heirs to define your legacy. But, with planning that power stays with you. Action today can help create the desired legacy, even if the first step is just to create a will.”
Convergent’s in-house Trust and Estate Planning advisor, Ms. Zaffos brings over 15 years of planning experience and expertise to legacy planning.
