These are the professional services that Bequest offers:
At Bequest, we address any initial concerns our clients may have about estate planning and will writing. We take our clients through the general concerns most people have when drafting a Will and then tailor the Will to suit our clients’ specific circumstances. Read more about the Will here.
We also understand that some people may require a Will over and beyond the usual requirements – for example, you may be involved in unique personal circumstances, want to set up trust structures or have more complicated instructions to leave behind for your executors to fulfill. We are confident that we have the expertise required to meet your requirements and we will take the time to understand exactly what you need and draft a Will according to your exact intentions.
Preparing and Executing a Lasting Power of Attorney ensures that in the event that you are declared to be medically unfit to take care of your own affairs, your chosen person is appointed to step in and take charge of your matters. The court process with a Lasting Power of Attorney executed is much faster compared to applying for a court-granted Lasting Power of Attorney. We advise clients on the process and explain the choices they can make in a Lasting Power of Attorney and provide the certificate issuer for the execution of the Lasting Power of Attorney. Read more about the LPA here.
People with interests in businesses and/or companies often may not have planned for how the business will be affected if one of the core members of the business passes away. We are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to assist business owners in their business succession planning and prepare the necessary documentation to ensure that their plans for their businesses are carried out.
We conduct periodic talks and seminars open to the general public to educate people on the importance of Estate Planning. In addition, we also work with companies and organisations to conduct on-site seminars to their employees about these important topics. Should you wish to organise a talk at your company, you may contact us at email@example.com and we will gladly assist you with it, like how we have for our list of valued clients.
We also work closely with a number of affiliates who can provide you with a wide range of services to ensure that all your needs are met.
You may choose to execute an Advanced Medical Directive (AMD) to let medical professionals know ahead of time whether or not you wish to receive extraordinary life-sustaining treatment to ensure that the medical professionals will respect any wishes you make beforehand and take the difficult decision out of the hands of your loved ones. This allows you to pass away naturally and can give your family closure. The AMD is regulated by the Ministry of Health and you can know more about it here.
We work closely with our affiliates who conduct talks and seminars on various topics relating to Wealth Management, such as “Debt and Credit Management”, “Maximising your CPF”, “Golden Goose Retirement Strategies”, “Strategies for Growing your Net Worth” and other similar talks and seminars. This can allow you to learn valuable knowledge to plan your finances and build a lasting legacy that you can leave for your next generation.
