Lester Brunt Wealth Management share some surprising similarities between golf and inheritance planning

Lester Brunt help families to look after each other, by building a financial plan that works for all generations. Careful inheritance tax planning is also about maintaining flexibility and control over any arrangements that are made. On the surface, golf and inheritance planning may seem worlds apart, but dig a little deeper and surprisingly enough, they have more in common than you might expect.

Strategic Decision-Making:

Both golf and succession planning require careful planning; evaluating options, and considering potential risks and benefits. In golf, players must analyse the course, taking into account factors like wind speed and direction to make tactical choices for each shot. Inheritance planning needs strategic decision-making to effectively distribute assets, minimize taxes, and ensure the long-term financial well-being of beneficiaries.

Long-Term Perspective:

As golfers we often have long-term goals for improving skills, achieving a certain handicap index, or winning championships. Inheritance planning focuses on long-term goals, ensuring the smooth transfer of wealth across generations and preserving family assets for the future. Both activities require consideration of the bigger picture.

Risk Management:

During a round of golf, players need to manage and assess risks associated with different shots, course conditions, and weather factors. Similarly, inheritance planning involves assessing and managing risks related to asset protection, tax obligations, and potential disputes among beneficiaries. Careful consideration of risks and strategies is needed to mitigate the chances paying off.

Collaboration and Professional Expertise:

Both golf and inheritance planning benefit from the expertise and guidance of professionals. In golf, players may seek coaching or guidance from golf instructors to improve their skills, while inheritance planning needs collaborations with financial advisers and solicitors if they are to develop effective strategies and navigate complex legal and financial matters.

While golf and inheritance planning may seem worlds apart, they share some common elements related to strategy, long-term planning, financial considerations, risk management, and collaboration with professionals. Understanding these similarities can provide a different perspective on how seemingly unrelated areas can have underlying similarities.
