Entrusted: Building A Legacy That Lasts
By David R York and Andrew L Howell
This book can radically change the way you think about a lasting legacy that impacts your family for generations without just dividing up your estate to your heirs or charity at your demise.
This book guides you to a holistic view of using the wealth you’ve built to preserve, protect and prepare your family on how to be good stewards of not only their money, but the money that you provide them.
Why should you ultimately deploy your financial assets at death the way that you would never have done while you were alive? “Entrusted, Building a Legacy That Lasts” explains why the model for estate planning today (Divide, Gift, Deferred, or Dissipate) is fundamentally flawed, especially for higher net worth individuals and family, and how it can be fixed. Entrusted is written by two estate planning attorneys who have worked for years with families of all shapes and sizes. Entrusted reviews the seven disciplines employed by families who successfully capture and pass wealth in all of its forms to successive generations.
This is a must-read book for anyone that wants to pass on assets to their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
