We stress starting the conversation early, creating ongoing engagement and sharing family history, values, and successes.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 06, 2015
Convergent Wealth Advisors has developed a new five-step guide on how quality legacy planning and education are key when it comes to preserving a family’s values, wealth, and heritage. This new Convergent wealth management guide—part of the firm’s “Live Well” series—examines the importance of next generation education when significant wealth is at stake. Written by Convergent’s wealth advisory experts Stephanie Zaffos and Ned Muskie, this simple guide shares best practices on when to involve heirs and how to improve their financial knowledge and maturity.
“Clients often have looming concerns over transferring significant wealth to their children and grandchildren,” said Zaffos, Managing Director, Trusts and Estates for Convergent. “Successfully passing on wealth often comes down to knowledge and maturity. We stress starting the conversation early, creating ongoing engagement and sharing family history, values, and successes.”
“Significant wealth can create significant opportunities and risks for those inheriting wealth," said Managing Director Muskie. “At Convergent, our advisors impress upon parents to be realistic as to what their children can handle and what they cannot. Money is a powerful tool which may help or hurt. Be smart and judicious when it comes to wealth transfer and the legacy you wish to create.”
