The Leading Edge
to pursue your legacy
We Focus On What Matters To You Most
“How do you protect your life's achievements and prepare your children for the responsibility of wealth?”
Wealth planning is more than just growing your wealth. It is about the people who matter the most to you, your family, and preparing them for the significant wealth you have dedicated your life to create. Without planning, the wealth you have built will diminish over your lifetime and be completely depleted by the generations that follow.
Why A Trust?
It is not uncommon to hear families describing their wealth as the result of the hard work of one or more family members, making it very important to create a framework to lay the grounds for comprehensive wealth. It is the hope of every affluent family to take any opportunity to prepare their next generation to be responsible stewards of both family wealth and the family legacy.
A Comprehensive Service
to protect your wealth for generations to come
In essence, estate planning involves ascertaining how an individual’s assets will be preserved, managed, and distributed after his or her demise. It also takes into account the management of an individual’s properties and financial obligations in the event of being incapacitated. For the affluent families, we understand that estate planning encompasses more than just financial capital and monetary value. It should reflect your philosophy towards your wealth, your goals, and your objectives. Ultimately, you will want to bring purpose to your wealth. You will find that the challenges of managing your own and your family’s wealth never stops, with the new addition of each generation renewing the cycle and passing on the responsibility. Here in UBB Private, we aim to help you engage a richer and more considerate view to take on these challenges and provide you with a broad range of estate planning needs.
You have to be mindful of tax implications, especially if you have investments and assets overseas, such as, property or shares. This will also be relevant if you have family members residing abroad. Advance planning will help you to mitigate these complex and potentially costly tax implications efficiently.
