Financial Services Expert, Perminder Chohan Suggests Beginning Estate Planning Early

RICHMOND, VANCOUVER BC– September 21, 2015 – Award-winning and inspiring business leader and financial services expert, Perminder Chohan has posted a new blog on the Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network website entitled, “Start Planning Your Estate As Soon As Possible.”

Perminder Chohan photoMr. Chohan writes, “Planning for the future of your loved ones is a process that can be exceedingly rewarding, particularly if begun early.” He continues adding, “Many people tend to put off estate planning because they associate it with thinking about disability, illness or death. However, the truth is that estate planning is about the people you love. It’s about how you want them to be taken care of in the event something happens to you. “

It’s apparent that, as Chohan states, “If you don’t put a plan in place it doesn’t mean events are not going to happen. The only thing that will happen is that you won’t be prepared and your family won’t be taken care of properly.”

Chohan advises, “So begin as soon as you can and review your Estate Plan regularly. Good estate planning can reduce the taxes that will need to be paid on the assets you leave to your heirs.”
