Changing the conversation around wills.

In collaboration with leading global public opinion and data research firm, YouGov, we have undertaken detailed research into individual attitudes towards will-making and estate planning, and the apathy that exists particularly among younger generations. We have published the findings in a new report, An Age of Apathy: Changing the conversation around wills.

We surveyed 374 people in the UK aged 18-50 with an income of £50k or over in early 2019 to explore their perception of the importance of a will, their reservations in making one and also their knowledge of the UK inheritance system.

A will remains the most effective way to divide assets and provide for those close to us on death. A will allows you to nominate guardians for young children, provide for unmarried partners and specify an individual to deal with your estate. Moreover, expert legal advice in writing your will can allow you to minimise tax payable on your death.

If you are considering making your first will, or you don’t believe your estate to be complex, visit our CB Entrust page to learn more about our personalised fixed-price wills service.
