As Ghandi once said ‘The future depends on what we do in the present’. In today’s episode we discuss how best to get your affairs in order for when the inevitable happens. A big part of that is making a will but there’s other things to consider. Our special guest; Stuart Adams, a Solicitor and Legal Director in the Tax and Wealth Planning Team at Mishcon De Reya joins the conversation and demonstrates the importance of solicitors and financial planners working together to get the best outcome for the client.

Three in five (59 per cent) UK adults have not written a will, new research from Canada Life today reveals. This equates to 31 million people, whose property, financial and other assets could be left to someone they have not chosen when they die.
