What Is Succession Planning?

Succession planning helps you decide how best to move your wealth on to future generations. It includes deciding who should benefit from your wealth, when they should benefit and then carrying out those decisions.

Succession planning usually involves making and Will to set out who should inherit your assets. For more complex families and wealth, there can be more steps like creating trusts or family investment companies to protect your wealth. It could also involve appointing professionals to help manage your assets.

Succession planning can help you:

  • Manage family expectations of what they’ll inherit
  • Educate the next generation on their responsibilities and how to manage a large inheritance
  • Minimise inheritance tax on your assets
  • Understand and make decisions about how to handle assets in different countries
  • Decide how to hand over control of your business and its assets
  • Think about putting aside some of your wealth for charity
  • Plan for unexpected circumstances, such as losing the mental capacity to handle your own affairs
  • Appointing professionals to manage your assets and business interests.
