Get rid of your money worries forever by Stress Testing your plan, the Super Rich do, so should you!

Rationale for Stress Testing

  • Used to avoid Potentially Destructive Situations
  • And to ensure you can benefit from every possible opportunity.

The Need for Stress Testing:

Wealth Plans are dated… circumstances have changed

  • The level and structure of the family’s assets
  • Changes in family and other relationships

Wealth planning was done incrementally

  • A piecemeal process
  • Lack or synergy
  • Opportunities for cost reductions

Wealth planning is not as good as it could be

  • Pretenders and Exploiters
  • Availability of superior solutions
  • Too focused on technical wizardry and not the Human Element

Common Errors Found when Stress Testing

  • Income mitigation strategies not considered (These strategies would bring down the tax bite)
  • Estate plans don’t provide for your heirs like you want them to
  • Excessive amounts of poorly structures life insurance
  • Personal umbrella policies are inadequate (You want your umbrella policy to match your net worth)
  • Family wealth could easily be lost when children divorce
  • Inheritors likely to go to war
  • Asset protection plans have deadly “backdoors”
  • Charitable monies can easily be redirected

Two ways stress testing plays out

Stay the course (The things you have in place will pan out)

Or one of three things

  • Improve your plan
  • Identify and Fix problems
  • Show you strategies that might be useful that other people have not
