Wealth Planning
    • Estate Planning:

      Estate Planning: Estate planning is a process which involves the counsel of professional advisors who are familiar with your goals and concerns, your assets and how they are owned, and your family structure. It can involve the services of a variety of professionals, including your lawyer, accountant, financial planner, life insurance advisor, banker and broker. Estate planning covers the transfer of property and wealth through tax efficient structure. The core document most often associated with this process is your will.

      An extremely popular estate planning technique is to do nothing and leave things to fate. This approach often leads to family disputes and lengthy court battles. Estate Planning and Trust Services play an integral role in helping families pass along values as well as wealth from one generation to the next.

      M Private Bank provides introduction services for Estate Planning through select third party service providers who aim to ensure that your assets are passed smoothly to your future generations. Our Relationship Manager along with our approved service partner will hold consultation with clients and their legal advisors to ensure that the clients' financial and estate planning objectives complement their desired goals and vision for building a family legacy.

      The third party service provider will provide customised solutions to address your estate and succession planning needs through a combination of structures which could include trusts and wills. The service provider will help you implement the structure and manage the associated fiduciary and administrative requirements during your lifetime and beyond.

      The Bank's role is limited to referring the client to the third party service provider for such Estate planning / Trust execution services. The Bank or the Bank’s representatives do not advise the clients on the same.

      Succession Planning: Succession planning is getting increasingly complicated. It is crucial to plan for the preservation, management and legacy of one's estate.
