“Inheritance often comes with strings attached — strings and a lot of strong feelings.”
— From the book “It’s Not Just About the Money”
Money with strings attached
When most people imagine inheriting large sums of money, they envision the lifestyle of their dreams. While significant inheritances can certainly help ease a family's financial outlook, they can also come with unanticipated responsibilities.
Strictures and Structures
Perhaps you have inherited money and are not sure how to manage your new found wealth. Perhaps you are the beneficiary of a trust but cannot access funds until certain criteria are met. Or you may have been charged with administering a foundation and are overwhelmed by the responsibilities associated with overseeing the investments and enhancing assets for future generations. If you are struggling to structure an inheritance plan that will benefit your family and/or the causes you support, you may be finding yourself overwhelmed by the amount of time this takes.
