Date: Wednesday, April 18, 2018
Time: 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Location: Spring Arbor University
Speaker: David P. Larson, Esq.
Topic: Planning for Unique Assets
Unique assets – art, antique cars, airplanes, boats, wine, etc. – they are actually more common than you think. Creating a plan for disposing of them upon death and administering those estates, on the other hand, can be complex. Whether you are an attorney, accountant, financial advisor, or other estate planning professional, knowing how to advise clients with extraordinary assets is crucial if a client lists such assets on a financial statement or estate planning questionnaire. Our keynote speaker frequently represents clients in the areas of High Net Worth Estate Planning, Tax, and Aviation Law. Potential areas of discussion: the importance of having an experienced fiduciary willing to administer an estate with unique assets; items of consideration for gifting airplanes and watercraft; options for charitable bequests of collections or assets, including upfront coordination with the organization and fiduciary regarding acceptance, maintenance, long-term planning, and cash bequests to support the in-kind gift; and more.  Come with questions for this experienced unique asset planner.
