An increase in wealth, especially when unexpected, large, and/or sudden, requires thoughtful planning. This is a critical time to provide guidance and value to your clients, and offers a unique opportunity to make a significant positive impact.

This checklist helps guide your conversations when advising clients that experience a sudden wealth event, and covers:

  • The nature, timing, and terms of the wealth event
  • Cash flow impact
  • Liquidity considerations
  • Tax planning matters
  • Long-term planning opportunities
