At death, a significant portion of your family wealth must be relinquished to support the general welfare of our country, what we call your Social Capital. Fortunately, the IRS gives you a choice for distributing this Social Capital via Involuntary Philanthropy (taxes) or Voluntary Philanthropy (giving).

With creative planning, there are techniques that can be utilized to maximize the amount of wealth that passes to your family and minimize the amount that is paid in taxes. The family wealth leverage achieved here is both incredibly powerful and extremely satisfying.

We can, along with your tax advisor, work with you to put into place strategies that may be able to help reduce the amount of Capital Gains Taxes that must be paid now and in the future. These techniques create powerful, new investment possibilities.

Many wealthy Americans have not typically made philanthropy a major part of their lives, generally for three main reasons: they do not consider themselves wealthy enough to give a major portion of their wealth away to charity, they are not interested in reducing their current lifestyle and they do not want to diminish their inheritances to their children.

What you may not realize is by going through our personalized results driven process, we can look for ways to help make philanthropy part of your future plans while also working to preserve your wealth for your family. This is the part of the wealth advisory process that’s both fulfilling and exciting.
