Learn to analyze various strategies in estate planning from a mathematical perspective. Number crunching shows us why certain strategies make more sense than others—like determining whether a simple loan is more effective than a GRAT, or whether a life insurance trust is the best option for owning term insurance.

Understanding the mathematical implications of the various planning options we have will make us better advisors.  Utilizing a mathematical analysis as part of our planning process will enable us to more effectively advise and educate our clients.

Attendees Will Learn:

  • Why different strategies are more appropriate/beneficial at different stages of life
  • Why loans may be preferable to GRATs
  • Whether to use a life insurance trust to own term life insurance
  • That there may be a better alternative to a QPRT
  • When and why to elect portability at death
  • How and when to use charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities
