International Families - Wealth planning in globally uncertain times

How can international families act now to futureproof their wealth?

International families are faced with numerous uncertainties, relating to an ever-changing external global outlook and evolving internal family dynamics, that make wealth planning hugely challenging. Families with connections to the UK are currently dealing with acute levels of uncertainty as a result of Brexit, which looks to continue for some time yet. During these times of uncertainty, it can be tempting for families to hold back from making succession plans, when it is arguably even more important to have plans in place, to mitigate against these increasing risks. Therefore, international families must shift their mindset from "wait and see" to "act now", in order to utilize current planning opportunities to safeguard their wealth.

Nuptial Agreements

Is a nuptial agreement right for you and your family?

The Forsters Family team want to open up the conversation about nuptial agreements, to dispel myths and to inform people about the benefits of having one and the practical process.

We are giving our insight and guidance on pre-nups and post-nups in the hope of bringing greater clarity to what can be seen as a 'taboo' topic; to provide reassurance about what having a nuptial agreement means; and understanding about the process involved. The aim is for people to feel comfortable about discussing nuptial agreements, so that an informed decision can be made about whether signing one is right for them.
