Voices Legacy building: Are advisors up to the task?
Helping clients leave a legacy is one of the more difficult, and nuanced, challenges facing a financial planner.
With many retirees having accumulated significant wealth through their workplace retirement programs, and through real estate, there are more families passing on wealth to their heirs.
