ASSET PROTECTION

PLAN YOUR FAMILY’S PEACE OF MIND

Successful business owners usually want to protect their hard-earned assets for good purposes. But many have not made a conscious, specific plan to preserve them. A common misconception is simply to place them beyond the reach of creditors–take them out of their name. But that is not as effective as many think. It is hard to have and not have an asset at the same time. A careful layered approach to risk management and asset protection is most effective.

Layer 1 - Best Business Practices

The first layer is to establish good business practices that take good care of your clients. The physician’s rule, “First do no harm” is paramount.

Effective checklists can help ensure that you don’t miss important deadlines or concerns.

Continuing education will help keep you aware of current practices and products that can best meet the needs of the clients.

Responsive communication with the clients will keep you informed of their needs.

Good bookkeeping keeps you straight with your clients and helps you be aware of your business needs. It prepares you to stay right with tax obligations.

Layer 3 - Appropriate Business Structure

The third layer of protection is to have an appropriate business organization. A limited liability company or corporate business structure can help contain a liability fire only to the business and prevent its spread to personal assets. A good buy sell agreement can provide for orderly succession for when an owner dies or leaves. A domestic asset protection trust can preserve a core set of assets from creditor aggression.

Layer 4 - Strategic Investment

The fourth layer of protection is to implement strategic investment. Inflation and taxes are constantly eroding the value of money saved at rates faster than interest accrues in bank accounts. Regular careful investing is essential to growing and preserving your estate. There are many different financial products that are appropriate for different circumstances: stocks, bonds, etfs, retirement accounts, annuities, currencies, etc. A good financial advisor is essential to helping you know your options and helping you implement a balanced investment strategy appropriate to your specific circumstances.
