Powerful Trust Planning Trends in 2022
Al King will join us virtually for this session. Topics included are:
1.) $72 trillion is due to transfer from the Silent Generation and Baby Boomers to Millennials and Gen X through 2045. Why is the modern directed trust so desirable to the Millennials and Gen X from an administrative investment and asset protection standpoint?
2.) $12 trillion is due to transfer to charity through 2045. This has resulted in powerful developments regarding charitable giving and the Family Dynasty Trust. The transfer also raises the question of whether a family will also need a Perpetual Private Foundation and/or Donor Advised Fund? Combination?
3.) The unique investment climate with high inflation and uncertainty has resulted in the need for some very unique investment strategies for trusts. These strategies may require the ability for trusts to adjust from a traditional 60/40 blend to a required 33/33/33 blend adding alternatives to the mix without any Prudent Investor Act or other trust law issues. Modern directed trust laws allow for either sophisticated asset diversification or no diversification at all. This flexibility is crucial to many family trusts in the current economic environment. Also providing the ability to deal with cryptocurrency and/or heavy allocations to cash?
