Bryan Ivamy

In today’s environment, the ‘Bank of Mum and Dad’ is being increasingly called upon. Demands from clients for ‘family financing’ are a common situation faced by financial advisers in its many hybrid forms and methods.

This financing is done to help family members however there is serious potential for dispute and loss of portfolio value!

Hear current best practice from an estate planning perspective for protecting the family wealth and assets while ensuring maximum benefit to the family.

In this session, Bryan will take you through:

  • the ways advisers can identify the issues and solutions to preserve equity for the lenders (parents) in order to recommend appropriate specialist advice
  • safeguarding the interest of beneficiaries and family members
  • what safeguards are available in case relationships fail, a business fails or funds are needed for other purposes.

Advisers will leave this session with a deeper understanding of the implications and potential issues involved in family lending, and ways to provide structure and assistance in this often emotive area.
