Strategies for estate planning and wealth distribution

A CommInsure Investment Growth Bond can be used to provide simplicity and flexibility for estate planning purposes, particularly for clients wishing to leave an inheritance for a child or grandchild.

Key estate planning benefits for your client include:

  • Tax-free proceeds - the deceased estate or nominated beneficiary receive funds tax-free
  • Flexibility - clients can nominate more than one beneficiary and can allocate the percentage each will receive
  • Avoiding delays - distribution of proceeds won’t be subject to the granting of probate
  • Solutions for complex family situations, and
  • A range of investment options and competitive fees

Learn more about these benefits and how a CommInsure Investment Growth Bond can be a solution to your client’s estate planning needs.
