Preparing for the Unexpected

Trust & Estate Services

elderly women consults with advisor

The Situation:

Margaret has $6.5 million in total net worth, including two residences, a multi-family apartment building and $1.5 million in closely-held stock and trusts. When her husband passed away, Margaret found out that she was not prepared for the unexpected, at least financially.

The Solution:

Margaret already knew her family advisors at PNC Wealth Management, including those now performing the executor and trustee functions for the estate. They had explained her rights as a beneficiary of her husband’s trusts, and helped her children understand his estate planning decisions. Margaret was greatly comforted by the fact that not only were planning and asset collection already in place, but there would be no delay in distributions. PNC Wealth Management also provided timely restructuring of the investment portfolios to suit her changed circumstances.

Estate planning is only performed in conjunction with a client’s attorney, accountant, and/or other business advisors.
