What is Trust Planning?
A common misconception I come across is that trust planning (including wills) and securing a financial legacy for future generations is exclusively for the uber-wealthy. This is absolutely not the case in reality.
Yes, it’s true that wealthy families have for many centuries been using trust planning to secure, protect and grow family assets in an efficient manner, but this type of planning is no longer just for nobility.
In the last two generations since the end of the Second World War we have seen rapid growth in middle class wealth, fueled primarily by property and equity markets. This means that middle class families now need to protect wealth from over-taxation, creditors, divorce, care home fees, IHT, etc. in the same way that high net worth families have been doing since the 11th century.
Is it for me?
