Alex Simeonides has a conversation with Tony Blewitt about the importance of Life Cover and why Capital Legacy decided to offer Life Cover too.
In an interview with Tony Blewitt; our CEO, Alex Simeonides, chats about why Life Cover is so important and why Capital Legacy has decided to offer Life Cover. He gives us insight on how the winding up of the Estate can be costly, and often exposes the financial implications of not having Life Cover. The reality for many South Africans is that, losing a loved one means losing an income and in some cases, the only income in a household. This can place immense strain on the family, and often leave them bankrupt. By having a sound Life Cover in place, you are ensuring that there is enough liquidity for the winding up of the estate, taxes and fees. We are also made aware of the fact that all Life Cover is not the same, and that Life Cover with Capital Legacy has unique benefits!

Alex Simeonides chats to Gareth Edwards about ‘Why the Zulu King’s Will is important for South Africans’
Our CEO, Alex Simeonides, chats to Gareth Edwards about the importance of having your wishes stated in a valid Will. There is an emphasis put on having conversations around death, in order to get a general idea of what may or may not be stated in a Will. Nobody wants to leave a family behind in the turmoil caused by not having a valid Last Will and Testament, fees which need to be paid and confusion around Estate distribution. People often think that royal families are exempt from these realities when a family member passes on, but in recent times we have been exposed to contentious applications, which make this topic relevant- namely; Queen Sibongile Winifred Zulu, the late King’s first wife, challenging the matter of her husband’s Will, saying that she is the only wife who married the late King in a civil marriage and wanting 50% of the late King’s Estate, and the late King’s daughters who are alleging that their father’s Will, which left the late Queen Mantfombi Dlamini as queen regent, may have been forged. Watch this interesting interview to find out more about this topic.
WHY YOU NEED A LAST WILL AND TESTATMENT
Contrary to popular belief, Wills are not only for the rich and famous. A Last Will and Testament is a legally binding document that deals with important things like who will care for your minor children and how your assets should be distributed after your death. Our latest article explains why you need a Will, the importance of regularly reviewing and updating it, and the consequences of not having one in place. The Covid-19 virus has seen people lose loved ones sooner than they expected and often losing multiple family members in a short space of time. This has forced more and more people to deal with the consequences of death in their families. At Capital Legacy, we specialise in Will drafting and Estate Administration and have made it easy for you to leave a legacy. We will draft and update or amend your Will for free.

CONSIDERING PURCHASING PROPERTY OVERSEAS? MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE CORRECT WILL TO COVER YOUR OFFSHORE ASSETS.
Not all countries share the same laws when it comes to inheritance and how they deal with or apply tax.
