Interesting investing trend

According to this CNBC article, many very affluent investors are shifting their investment portfolios around as they search for (1) safety and (2) yield. Safety or asset preservation and yield or accumulation are two often conflicting goals for investors. The article does point out that following the investing habits of very affluent investors (those with over $30 million to invest) is not necessarily a good idea for ordinary investors. But as Robert Frank notes, wealthy investors “set the tone for the broader market,” so if they are dumping publicly traded U.S. stocks in favor of private companies, real estate, and commodities (as the study suggests many are), it may send signals rippling through the broader stock markets for some time.

For both asset protection (from creditors, taxes, divorcing spouses, and spendthrift children) and tax benefits, we’re recommending Inheritor’s Trusts or Beneficiary Defective Inheritor’s Trusts (BDITs) to many of our affluent clients, clients who anticipate  receiving an inheritance from their relatives of  over $400,000, and entrepreneurial clients who like to start, grow, and sell small businesses. An Inheritor’s Trust works well in any of these situations and is an exciting new tool to help facilitate your estate and financial planning needs. Call (913-707-9220) or email (steve@johnsonlawkc.com) our law firm, Johnson Law KC LLC, to learn more about how you can benefit from an Inheritor’s Trust and for a convenient and free half-hour consultation.
