After painstakingly creating wealth, the next hurdle should be protecting your assets and securing your financial goals for future generations.
This step is essential because 90 percent of wealthy families lose their wealth after the third generation. That is why our team of experienced tax planning advisors in Portland, OR, offers comprehensive wealth management and estate planning services in Portland and surrounding cities.
Multi-generational planning involves preparing to transfer your wealth to younger generations. With thorough planning, your life’s work is successfully transferred to your children, who pass it down to their children when the time is right.
Multigenerational family wealth planning ensures financial stability among the generations in the family with the transferal of assets, family business, and even financial gifts to younger relations.
With the constant increase in fortune, you should consider financial planning for multigenerational families to ensure that your assets are shared to achieve your future goals.
While most people often develop reduced risk tolerance as they age, multi-generational asset allocation can help lessen the risks.
In this case, the investment time horizon depends on generations of the family, not just yours, so the liquidity tolerance is also shared among the family.
Maximizing the yearly gift exclusion can reduce your potential estate tax liability. With this straightforward strategy for generational planning, you can remove assets and their potential appreciation from your taxable estate and reduce the burden on your heirs.
You can consider philanthropy, a long-term wealth management strategy, by creating a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) or a family foundation to structure the donation process.
Contributing to a DAF makes you eligible for a tax reduction during the contribution. Upon your passing, your successor directs subsequent donations in the form of cash, securities, and other assets.
A trust is a fiduciary arrangement for a third party to hold assets for the beneficiary or beneficiaries on behalf of the asset owner.
With trusts, you can protect assets from estate taxes and creditors and ensure your assets go to your cross-generational families.
Your life insurance can cover the cost of living for your family and reduce the estate tax burden.
Irrevocable life insurance trusts (ILITs) are paid out upon the insured’s passing. Since trust outside the estate controls the life insurance policy, it’s not a part of the policyholder’s estate and is not taxable.
