Chartered Trust and Estate planners work with clients, providing accounting, financial, and legal advice which helps them to prepare for end-of-life and succession issues. The main objective of this certificate designation is to safeguard clients’ assets as they pass from their ownership to their desired inheritors. Once a client passes away, an estate plan would dictate the dispersal of assets per the deceased’s directions. Without an estate plan, these decisions may be left to the next of kin or the state.
Duties of estate planners include:
Creating a last will and testament
Setting up trust accounts
Naming an executor and power of attorneys
Identifying all beneficiaries
A good estate planner should update his/her skills and knowledge regularly as clients’ financial situations, personal motivations, and federal and state laws all evolve.
As with any profession, there are characteristics and skills that can help you achieve these goals as you work with your clients in an estate planner role.
