Estate planning lessons from Hillary Clinton

When an individual decides to run for the office of the President of the United States of America, he or she is required to go through a process of disclosing his or her finances. Candidates are allowed to list their assets in categories and with very broad ranges, but the public in Tennessee and elsewhere are granted insight into how they have run their financial lives, which can be very revealing. In the case of Hillary Clinton, some of her estate planning measures show a remarkable sense of savvy.

How to prevent a depletion of estate scenario

Many Tennessee families spend decades building their wealth and making solid financial decisions to create growth and protect assets. When building an estate plan, creating a system to protect against the depletion of estate assets is often a top priority. No one wants to think about having his or her hard-earned assets squandered by chosen heirs, but that is exactly what happens in some cases. Fortunately, there are a number of trusts available to help prevent that outcome and ensure that wealth is available throughout an heir's lifetime and beyond.

How to protect horses within a Tennessee estate

The practice of owning, training, racing and showing horses is deeply ingrained in Tennessee history. Horse lovers often spare no expense in caring for their animals and, over the course of time, amass a considerable amount of wealth in the form of their horses and their equipment. When creating an estate plan, it is important to address these assets and to make plans for the ultimate disposition of the animals.

A will or trust may not always allow equal distribution

When people in Tennessee begin to consider the distribution of their estates, they may think the easiest thing to do is to divide their assets evenly among their beneficiaries. While this approach may simplify the process for the individual or couple making the plan, it may actually complicate the lives of the beneficiaries. There are some family situations that require more careful thought when making decisions concerning a will or trust.
