Is having a will really that important?

06 Sep 2019

If you want to ensure that your estate is left to the people you intended, then yes.

Being an expat and a global citizen, it is even more important to have a will in place to take care of your loved ones’ inheritance. 

You will most likely be residing in several different countries during your working life, and some have different laws when it comes to death and inheritance distribution. 

Without a will, you are handing over your last wishes to government regulations and laws. They will distribute your estate according to the country laws and your family could end up with very little, or your estate could go to other family members.

Also, non-family members that you wanted to include as a beneficiary might not be considered.

It might be good time to review your will if you already have one in place, as your circumstances may have changed.

Don’t delay. Contact your deVere Acuma adviser about drawing up or reviewing your will, or mail [email protected]
