Overview

PLI’s Annual Estate Planning Institute is a staple for those advising high-net worth individuals and partnerships on trusts and estate preparation.  Now in its 53rd year, this master class is more important than ever. After all, even seasoned advisors were challenged by the uncertainty imposed by the pandemic on otherwise solid trusts and estates arrangements. Yet while the specifics of clients’ short- and long-term objectives might have changed over the last two years, long-standing goals of preserving assets and minimizing tax burdens remain unabated. 

This two-day program is essential training for sophisticated estate planning.  The faculty will parse through complex tax codes and explain recent legislation as a framework for instruction on how to effectuate clients’ wealth building strategies while planning for fundamental life changes.
