Importance Of Succession Plan & Wealth Management In UAE

We live in a world of uncertainties, surprises, and a world that has been drastically changing. Every individual can be outstanding in creating wealth. However, very few of them succeed in reserving it for the future.

Wealth has most likely topped our charts of life. All we work for, strive for, dream for, and go beyond all difficulties to make a living leads to wealth. But the question indeed remains, how much of it are we reserving it for the future?

Are we truly concerned of our well-being from this year, till our generations to come?


ISSUE ONE – LACK OF KNOWLEDGE. Most of us stand far from the idea of knowing the importance of saving. Most of us find it challenging to defeat our desires over needs and get attracted to wants, which leads us to be broke much before we can even consider an investment.

Let’s understand that you can never safeguard your wealth. There can be unexpected events that would take away all that you have tried to reserve; it could be a natural disaster or someone in the family requires a huge amount of liquid to save their life against illness. However, the idea of succession planning will help you beat all these odds and provide you with the best security for your wealth and your future.

ISSUE TWO – LACK OF AMBITION. While we may accept that we are a group of hard-working class individuals, who might come across complicated and challenging situations, the bitter truth is most of us aren’t ambitious enough. To change your current pace, you must fuel in with an ambition.

ISSUE THREE – CHAIN OF VALUES. As you may have wondered, our history of rulers and kings functioned in a succession method. Shocking, isn’t it? Let me break it down for you; they always practiced handing over the kingdom from one father to another, one son/daughter to another. They would never give an outsider any liberty to take claim over their assets.

What we understand from this is that using a succession plan can be a strategic way of building a secure and growing financial legacy for your loved ones.
