Estate planning is more than just drawing up a will, or making a cashflow analysis;
Estate planning is:
- making sure that the wishes you have in your will can be executed
- making sure that there are sufficient funds for your loved ones
- making sure that your estate planning is tax efficient
Your ability to earn an income is one of your most valuable assets. With it, you are able to provide for yourself, your family and any dependants. Consider what would happen if you were no longer able to provide for them.
People insure their new car before they drive it out of the showroom, yet, they fail to ensure the person responsible for the payment thereof.
The question to ask is thus: Is your income fully protected for your loved ones should something happen to you?

Retirement should be a time when you get to reap the benefits of decades of hard work. To do this effectively, you need to start saving when you’re young. With the current advances (not to mention future ones) in technology and medicine, you can expect to live longer. That means you’ll need to make provision for an additional 20 – 25 years if you are planning to retire at the age of 65. The best time to start is always now. Contact us to discuss the various retirement solutions we offer.
Are you aware of the fact that up to 27.5% of your salary can be contributed towards retirement provision and all the contributions will be tax deductible up to a maximum of R350,000 per annum?
We offer solutions for both pre- and post-retirement.
Saving money is key to achieving your goals, whether you are saving for a new car, a trip overseas or a deposit on a home.
Investing your money helps it grow in a number of ways, i.e. through compound interest and increase in the value of the underlying shares or instruments. It makes you financially independent. Saving regularly ensures that you will have less of a need for credit or loans and more money available to buy or do the things you want to do.
Saving or investing for your goal is a medium- to long-term commitment. There are various Old Mutual investments and saving plans you can choose from.

Investing in an education plan is one way of ensuring your child receives the best education possible and the good news is, it’s never too late to start!

Your last will and testament are some of the most important documents you will ever sign during your lifetime. Your will is an essential part of estate planning as it stipulates how you want your assets dealt with upon your death.
Your estate refers to everything you own and owe, from property and cars to investments and debts. Proper estate planning will ensure that your estate is set up in a tax-efficient way that benefits you during your lifetime and your beneficiaries after your death. Planning is key to winding up your estate quickly with up-to-date wills and trust funds.
