With great wealth, comes great freedom - and even greater complexity. The same freedom that can afford the modern family access to unique opportunities can also often significantly complicate its affairs, particularly where family members and assets are located around the world. A family’s estate planning strategy must be both dynamic and sophisticated, customised to the individual's lifestyle and the varied personal, cultural and financial needs of each family member.
