Hermeneutics for Designing Estate Planning Tools & Techniques: A Method in the Madness of the Fine Art of Designing Estate Planning Tools and Techniques



Watch Now!
Recording and Slides are Available Here


Knowledge of how to design estate planning techniques is as important as knowledge of estate planning tools and techniques. There is no “Magic Eight Ball” in how to design estate planning tools and techniques. The best that we can hope for is a hermeneutic, which is a tool or method of interpretation. 

In his exclusive LISI webinar, Paul Hood present a tripartite hermeneutic that can transform how advisors design estate planning tools and techniques: the assets/cash flow; the characteristics and limitations of an estate planning tool or technique; and the players involved. During his webinar Paul will review estate planning goals and risks in general and the reasons for poor estate planning design through the lens of two real life cases that ended badly for each family. His three-part hermeneutic has the following prongs: 

·       Assets and Cash Flow Prong

·       Estate Planning Tool or Technique Used Prong

·       Players Prong

Each year there are many reported malpractice cases where the planning was technically good, but the design advice was ill-advised using the benefit of 20/20 hindsight. Attend this important webinar so that you don’t end up there!
