Whether you are an individual concerned about your personal assets being passed on to beneficiaries of your choice or a business owner wanting to do succession planning for whoever is next up in your business, you need to factor in to your estate planning or buy/sell agreements life insurance.
Going to the bother and expense of setting up wills, trusts and buy/sell agreements with the idea that your wishes will be honored is great, but there is a problem if the expenses involved in this transaction are not provided for via life insurance.
