Reviewing your assets for protection, our simple three step process
Updated: Feb 16
Do you know your net worth and what you stand to lose in a disagreement? It’s a tough subject to broach but one we see all too often when relationships turn sour and disagreements mean a split within the business or family.
Taking a proactive approach to asset management allows you to understand the true landscape of your assets and how to protect them. Our approach at Sellar Bone is to take a consultative review of your assets and work with you on how you wish them to be allocated and protected. In the event of a disagreement in the future this proactive approach ensures you can still keep or allocate your assets as you see fit. This makes it easier for everyone involved in the long run and can save many hours of negotiation and expensive legal fees.
Through a proactive approach, you will know that the assets will be secure and potentially safeguarded for future generations.
(1) Build A Comprehensive View of your Assets
Do you know your true net worth value and what you should be protecting? Are you including the family home, the wealth of the business? Do you understand your creditor liabilities or your partners liabilities?
