Estate Planning



Estate and succession planning can be described as the art of planning and organising personal affairs to achieve maximum wealth protection, for one’s family.

An estate plan may be prepared at any time of one’s life but we usually recommend our clients to start early as this is more effective. Effective estate planning may include appropriately drafted wills and the use of trusts, among other things.

With proper estate planning, our clients are able to minimise the exposure of their accumulated wealth to unnecessary expenses and taxes. This helps them safeguard their wealth during their lifetime and ensures that their loved ones will be properly provided for when their time comes.



Thank you for reaching out to us. Kindly fill up this form and we aim to reply you as soon as possible. For more urgent matters, please call us at +65 6323 8383.
