Jou Koninkryk

Die werklikheid is dat meer as 75% van Suid Afrikaners afsterf sonder om ‘n geldige Testament in plek te hê. Jy mag dalk nie ‘n Zoeloe-koning wees met miljoene in bates nie, maar jy is beslis koning van jou eie koninkryk en baas van jou eie (en jou gesin se) nalatenskap.
Ongeag van wat jy mag dink van die Zoeloe-koning, het hy ‘n goeie voorbeeld gestel vir alle Suid Afrikaners, deur tyd te bestee om sy sake in orde te kry en sy Testament op te stel. Te veel Suid Afrikaners stel uit tot dit te laat is, en dit kan hartverskeurende gevolge hê vir hul gesinne en afhanklikes.

Alex Simeonides On The Aubrey Masango Show

Gushwell Brooks interviews our CEO, Alex Simeonides, on the Aubrey Masango show on 702. They have a very interesting discussion on the importance of having a Will in place. Alex shares invaluable insight into the potential pitfalls of not having your Will drafted by a professional and the disastrous consequences for your family if you don’t have a valid Last Will and Testament in place. They chat about why so many South Africans procrastinate when it comes to proper Estate Planning and Will drafting and how easy and accessible Capital Legacy have made it to draft your Will through a complimentary Will consultation with an expert consultant. Alex also answers listener questions related to Wills and Estates, from the unexpected costs associated with dying, to questions around property inheritance and the link between your Will and antenuptial contract. A superb and worthwhile conversation to listen to.


Why the Zulu King’s last will & testament is so important for South Africans

The late King Goodwill Zwelithini, King of the Zulu nation, the largest monarchy in South Africa, passed away earlier this year after ruling for more than 53 years on the throne. His passing has set off a series of dramatic events that are still playing out in the public eye, and in the courts.

So why is this case important for us as South Africans you ask? The reality is that over 75% of South Africans pass away without a valid Will in place. You may not be a Zulu King with millions in assets, but you are certainly king of your own kingdom and master of your own (and your family’s) legacy.

Vir hierdie gene is dit verstandig om op hoogte te bly met die SAID se beskouing van hierdie beleggings en transaksies.
