Our MD, Brandon Garbutt, chats to Darren Scott to discuss the upcoming Wills Week and how Capital Legacy has opted to make it Wills Month to educate South Africa on the importance of having a valid and up-to-date Will. They discuss whether awareness weeks truly help in changing statistics, in general, and certainly whether this is reflected when it comes to Will-drafting. Capital Legacy strives to make drafting a Will easy by availing more than 100 consultants who meet with Clients, where and when it is convenient. They also chat about the consequences of not having a Will – such as family feuds occurring because no-one is sure what you may have wanted to have happened to your assets and family heirlooms, unmarried partners will not benefit and who you want to appoint as the guardian of your minor children.

Waardevolle voordele vir huiskopers aangebied
“Toe ons ondersoek na die huiskopersmark ingestel het, het twee tekortkominge vir ons duidelik geword. Eerstens is die hele proses ingewikkeld en ongerieflik vir die kliënt en tweedens word die finansiële adviseur by die aankoop van een van die kliënt se grootste bates uitgesluit. Die finansiële adviseur is die individu op wie die kliënt steun en vertroue vestig om hulle by te staan en advies te gee oor beleggings en nalatenskapbeplanning,” verduidelik Brandon Garbutt, besturende direkteur van Capital Legacy.
