Taking Steps to Help Protect Your Wealth and Assets

If you have accumulated wealth, it is important to protect it. If you take steps to protect your assets, a significant amount of your wealth will not end up in wrong hands. By putting the right wealth transfer strategies in place you can protect your heirs and make sure your wishes are respected.

Every member of a business-owning family should be concerned about the following statistics:

  • Only 30% of all family-owned businesses survive into the second generation.
  • Only 12% make it to the third generation.
  • Only 3% of all family businesses continue to operate at the fourth generation level and beyond.
  • Further studies show that only 25% of senior family business owners have completed any Estate
  • Planning other than writing a Will even though 81 % say they want the business to stay in the family.
  • Only 7% have hired professionals to help deal with the family relationship issues involved in planning for the continuation of the business.

    For individuals who own businesses, an appropriate wealth transfer plan will blend personal, financial and tax considerations into a comprehensive family wealth transfer plan and business succession plan that preserves a family’s wealth for the individual and his or her heirs.
