Practical guide – The essentials for preparing your will

A will is the most important document in your estate planning, as it gives you a voice even once you have passed on. When you make a will, you protect your loved ones and ensure that your last wishes are honoured.

We’ve put together a guide to help you begin thinking about your estate, start discussions with your loved ones, clarify your wishes, and make some important choices.
