Fiduciary Services & Tax Planning

Fiduciary Services

With the purpose of providing our clients with a holistic service offering, we offer them the benefit of additional services such as the drafting of Wills at no additional cost, Estate Planning, Estate Administration & Trust Administration, all of which form an integral part of every person’s financial plan.

Last Will & Testament

It is imperative to ensure your wishes are documented when you are no longer around to look after your own affairs, which can be done by drafting your Last Will & Testament.

Why ensure that

you have a valid will?

If you do not have a valid Will, your estate will be distributed interstate, which can be a very lengthy process and minor’s inheritances may be held by the State’s Guardian Fund until the beneficiary reaches the age of 18.  This is not something any parent wants for their young children.

Having a valid Will ensures that your assets are distributed to the beneficiaries of your choosing, according to your last wishes.

Should you nominate a minor as a beneficiary, you can protect the assets by stipulating that the proceeds must be kept in a testamentary trust which can be controlled by a Trustee/s of your choosing until a predetermined age beyond the majority age of 18.

“Investing isn’t about beating others at their game. It’s about controlling yourself at your own game”

– Benjamin Graham –

Living Will

A Living Will is a legal document that informs doctors and medical caregivers what medical care you want if you are unable to communicate due to an accident, severe illness, dementia or coma. It also guides your family in making decisions about sustaining your preferred quality of life, without the pressure of conflicting emotions and guilt. Additionally, we can include your request to become an Organ Donor and our Fiduciary partner will ensure that you are loaded onto the Organ Donor List.

Estate Planning

Although a person has a valid Will in place, it doesn’t mean that their assets – or the full value of their assets – will go to the beneficiaries as per their wishes. Before assets are distributed to the beneficiaries, all outstanding liabilities and expenses must be paid. These expenses include Estate Duty, Master’s fees, Executor’s fees, deathbed expenses, etc., and can drastically reduce the assets which are inherited.  This can be devastating for your family if you are the sole breadwinner of the family and have not provided for your dependents in death.

We can assist you in drawing up an Estate Plan and calculating the estimated expenses, and if necessary, putting in place a plan to ensure these expenses are funded, whether through life assurance or investments, to ensure that your beneficiaries are adequately looked after, and that your last wishes are fulfilled.

Investment Tax Planning

Tax planning is an integral part of the wealth management process. Effective tax planning requires careful attention to various taxes, duties and time frames, taking into account both anticipated tax changes and current tax law. Globalisation in financial markets requires one to also have a comprehensive understanding of international tax law and because tax is so closely related to investments and personal finance we have partnered with some of the most respected tax advisory firms in the country to ensure our clients receive the finest tax advice to meet their individual needs.

Business & Life Assurance

Risk protection is an area of financial planning that is designed to protect you against unforeseeable eventualities in the future, including death, disability, severe illness and health ailments. While you are still accumulating your wealth, repaying your home loan and saving for your retirement years, your most valuable asset is your ability to generate an income. Unforeseeable eventualities have the ability to cause huge financial losses, and we believe that these risks can be effectively protected against through insurance. Our independent nature allows us to request life and business assurance quotes from a range of service providers ensuring the cover you get meets your exact needs and objectives whilst keeping your monthly costs as low as possible. We do a full comprehensive analysis on each client to ensure the cover we put in place is adequate and relevant to their situation. In addition, we review each client’s cover on an annual basis to ensure it remains aligned to their ever-changing business and lifestyle needs and that it does not become outdated or obsolete.

Our range of corporate and individual insurance products consists of:

– Life Assurance
– Disability Assurance 
– Severe Illness/Dread Disease Benefits
– Income Protection
– Funeral Plans
– Buy and Sell Agreements
– Key Man Insurance
– Shareholders Agreement
