Advanced Tax Planning and Charitable Giving Strategies for HNW Families

Advising high-net-worth (HNW) families requires a sophisticated understanding of topics such as advanced estate planning, gifting and charitable giving strategies, as well as up-to-date knowledge of tax laws, sunset provisions and pending legislation. Advisors must be able to identify and analyze the unique challenges faced by HNW families and develop specific insights to best fit the needs of their clients. This pre-conference workshop will discuss tax planning and charitable giving strategies and solutions and analyze various wealth planning techniques to provide advisors practical application through discussion of specific client case studies.
