Do you have one?
Why did I ask?
My MIL told me it is difficult without a will, to pass on the shares to the next of kin, if she passes on. I heard of the trouble before and she told me that all we need is a form.
I ask my broker for advice, and this is what he told me.
It is indeed very troublesome if one passes on without a will.
He told me one way to get around this is to get a joint account for trading.
When I passes on, my wife will have access to all my shares.
I thought this is important, and I will most probably start opening a joint account with her.
I am sure many of us, at certain point of Market, we will have significant amount of cash in equity. What happened if you passes on then? I guess, the amount of cash in equity could be well above 50% of your liquid assets.
We all invest for our loved ones too, one way or another. so perhaps it is time to think about this?
I tried to google for more information, but I really find nothing really useful. There are some pretty good information about will making but not how we handle our CDP shares if we passes on.
If anyone can share a helpful link. It would be most useful.
