In the second installment of Modern Wealth Management, Darrick and Ray explore the complex nature surrounding inheritances. The big question surrounding this topic is: Are your heirs ready to deal with the wealth you may be planning to pass on to them someday?

It's an unfortunate fact that inheritors often struggle with their windfalls in a way that can be hazardous to the overall wealth. It takes proper planning and clear communication to alleviate any potential problems that could occur with the inheritance itself, as well as the beneficiaries' spending habits afterwards.

We all understand the general process behind inheritances, but this episode unveils the intangible elements that come into play, especially when a significant level of wealth is being transferred.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy another enlightening conversation that sheds light on a topic we all thought we knew.
