Ed has over thirty years of experience assisting individuals and families with their financial and investment planning. In this role he manages a portfolio of personal, retirement, and charitable accounts. Ed will be joining us to give us the rundown on estate planning and QTIP trusts. Not having a plan to pass your estate at death can leave your family with many problems. First, the government has its own plan – the law of intestacy – that says who will receive your assets and in what proportion. And it likely won’t be the result you would have wanted.

Some simple planning can avoid this but, more importantly, it can also help solve problems specific to your family. For example, an estate plan can: Maintain a family business, Retain control of assets after death, Cover changing family needs, Provide liquidity for taxes, Protect a spouse when there has been a second marriage, Differentiate different needs between children, and Protect a family member with a disability. Planning for the future is essential to retaining control of your legacy, come on out on June 19th to learn how to ensure your inheritance goes where you want it to go.
