Designing Your Legacy

A well-designed financial plan will not only assure you a comfortable lifestyle, but will also afford you opportunities to create a durable legacy to benefit individuals and institutions of your choosing.  Quadrant helps clients craft estate plans to meet their highly individualized family goals and philanthropic interests.

  • Implement strategies for maximizing use of gift and estate tax credits, and carefully consider any state gift and estate tax rules
