Successful wealth transfer is one of the most important things to accomplish in your lifetime and usually is an ongoing work-in-process. Wealth represents so much more than money - especially when wealth holders begin to consider what they will will do with the rest of their lives and what they will actually leave their heirs.
Estate planning involves planning for the accumulation and distribution of an estate during lifetime as well as death. An estate plan aims to preserve the maximum amount of wealth possible for the intended beneficiaries and flexibility for the individual prior to death. (Tools)
