Transferring Wealth to Next Generations

A wealthy couple in their 60’s have jointly held investments of $26 million and a $200,000 per year pension. They have two children (one with special needs) in their mid-30’s and two young grandchildren. They spend time in four vacation homes each year, which requires a stable spending budget.

Client Needs

They wanted to ensure the children would be cared for during their lifetimes, to secure their elder care and to meet their philanthropic goal of donating $250,000 to charities each year.
