We compile a detailed view of assets, liabilities and cash flows, effectively building your personal balance sheet. This view allows us to assess whether investments, insurance, wills, trust deeds and contracts are optimal. It also enables us to assist in planning for the responsible transfer of wealth to generations to follow. Your estate plan is updated annually on your review date.
Wills & Trusts
We find that many wills are out of date due to legislation amendments. Worse still, many younger clients have no will at all. A precise and up to date will assists an executor in winding up an estate in a satisfactory and speedy manner. Trusts can be effective planning tools, but must be established for the right reasons and within the context of a family’s overall estate plan. With our family office fiduciary partners, we can review existing trusts and establish and manage local and offshore trusts at very competitive fee levels.
We diversify investors’ capital across a range of investment instruments. Inflation based returns are targeted over specific time periods and performance is regularly reviewed. We are able to offer a mix of unit trust funds, hedge funds and share portfolios, and have strong expertise in both local and offshore investing as well as retirement funding vehicles.
Our Consequence Model Portfolios blend together carefully selected fund managers with proven track records and reflect our best market views. They are actively managed in partnership with Morningstar Investment Management, the premier global fund and market researcher. We can blend these models with bespoke share and unit trust portfolios as required. Please contact us to view fact sheets.
Life, Disability & Dread Disease Insurance
Our estate analysis provides us with the exact figures required. We often encounter clients who have been oversold or advised to go into an inappropriate mix of benefits. As with medical aid, this is a grudge purchase at best – ensuring your premiums and benefits are spot on and up to date is the right thing to do.
Medical Aids are major monthly budgeting items and plan details can be complex. We assist in plan selection and complex claim situations. Focus on general wellness and health form an important part of our overall service and we run numerous wellness days for individual and corporate clients. Please click here for more detail.
