Webinar – Beyond the Plan: Bringing Trusts to Life

November 12, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

More family businesses and wealth are held in trust than ever before. Yet, despite the best efforts of advisors, trusts often fail to reach their full potential after the ink dries. It doesn’t have to be this way.

In this conversation and open Q&A, Ruth Steverlynck, FEA, will interview trust expert Patricia Angus, author of The Trustee Primer and The Beneficiary Primer (forthcoming) about how advisors and families can make the most of their trusts. It goes beyond technicalities into relationships, mindset, practices, and more.

Topics will include:

  • How can you best conceptualize (and explain) trusts?
  • How do you make the relationships between beneficiary and trustee a positive one?
  • What are some of the potential pitfalls and opportunities for businesses held in trust?
  • What is common across all trusts, regardless of jurisdiction?

Come with questions and be prepared to hear from a global expert on how to grasp complicated concepts in easy frameworks.
