Estate planning is unfortunately a topic that we often avoid or delay having a meaningful conversation about.
We all know that one day our number will come up and that we will most likely leave behind loved ones who ultimately will inherit something, be that large or small.
Importance of estate planning
Having a Will is a key part of estate planning as it ensures that those left behind will not have the burden of going through the lengthy and in some cases costly process of dying intestate (that is without a Will).
Equally important, should someone not die but unfortunately suffer an illness or accident where they are incapable of making informed decisions then it is absolutely imperative they have an Enduring Power of Attorney in place.
In my role heading up of the financial planning team at Quill Group, I can say that we take estate planning very seriously and believe that it plays an integral role in any good financial plan. We see our role as advisers as making sure that our clients don’t put off making a decision about estate planning, regardless of age.
