Estate Planning Rule #1: Spouses Come First
When you think about estate planning, your children and grandchildren are probably the loved ones that initially come to mind. But for most people, the first step is usually transferring wealth from one spouse to another. We can help ensure your husband or wife lives comfortably for the remainder of his or her years before transferring the family legacy on to your heirs. Learn more in our special report The Modern Couple's Guide to Legacy Planning and contact us today to learn how we can help.
Receiving an inheritance can be a difficult process at an emotionally challenging time—and our 2017 Wealth Transfer Report: Lasting Legacy found that most inheritors were generally unsupported and unprepared to receive an inheritance. That’s why it’s critical to have a comprehensive plan in place to provide guidance at a difficult time and help ensure that your heirs carry on your legacy for generations. Learn more about wealth transfer planning and contact us to discuss how we can help you preserve your wealth for generations.

Our wealth management process begins with understanding each client’s unique needs and developing an appropriate risk profile. The profile is used to create a basic asset allocation and to select an appropriate investment strategy. Once a client has embraced a sound asset management strategy, the focus moves to creating a comprehensive wealth management plan including retirement planning, tax analysis, insurance needs and estate planning.
While prudent asset management is vital and planning plays an important role in wealth management, these activities have to be integrated to align financial resources with life’s goals. The Woo Group has relationships with leading estate planning attorneys, insurance brokers and accountants for coordination and seamless delivery of world-class expertise as part of its wealth management process.
