Elder vulnerabilities (mental incapacity)
Ang Kim Lan
With the increasing Silver population in Singapore, the elder person can be vulnerable to undue influence from other people, including
their family members and close friends. Despite medical advancements, stroke, dementia, depression and mental incapacity are on the
rise.

In the unfortunate event of mental incapacity, who can give instructions on your behalf? Can anyone mobilize your financial reserves
during your period of mental incapacity?

How can you best make plans to manage your personal welfare and safeguard your assets in the event of unexpected mental incapacity?
The commonly discussed LPA form 1 caters generally to people with very basic and minimal requirements.

In this master class, let Kim Lan share how individuals with more customized needs can draw up a LPA form 2 for more robust planning
when mental incapacity hits.

Retire Smart (Legacy Planning)
Lorna Tan
Many people dream hard and long about their eventual retirement.

We spend decades building our wealth, before realizing that wealth distribution is equally as important as wealth accumulation in
leaving a smooth Legacy for our loved ones. Our family members are unique individuals with different attitudes towards money and the
financial maturity in money management.

In this master class, let Lorna share her insights on legacy planning and what it encompasses, such as wealth protection, preservation
and maintaining family harmony.

Structuring Property Trusts for Legacy Succession
Lee Chiwi
Real estate, held in Trust or in the Estate, can allow the beneficiaries to reap significant capital gains over time. Rental income of real estate
can also provide a stable stream of maintenance payments for your family members.

Which Trust is suitable to hold real estates? What are the differences between a Discretionary Trust and Absolute Trust? Can a Trust
allow beneficiaries to draw a loan to purchase their choice of real estate? What are the Trustee’s powers in acquiring a property for
beneficiaries?

In this master class, Chiwi will share on the succession of real estate, structuring of family trusts for the holding of real estate, the exercise
of powers by the Trustee in relation to real estate acquisitions and the impact of stamp duties and additional buyers’ stamp duties.

HNW wealth succession with PTC special purpose vehicles
David Chee
Succession of the family business to the next generational family members is one of the most challenging concerns for business founders
approaching the twilight of their career.

The decision as to who should take over control of the family business (if there even was a ready successor in the first place) is never easy.
Many family business founders grapple and ponder over the issue of a suitable successor without any firm conclusion.

In this master class, David will explain the concept of a PTC (private trust company). This structure is essentially premised as a trust, where
the PTC is a special purpose vehicle incorporated by the founder to act as the Trustee of the family trust to hold ownership of the family
wealth.

Multi-Generational Trusts — beneficiaries as stakeholders of the family legacy
Florence Koh
Trusts have been employed by many wealthy families to pass wealth from one generation to the next.

What motivates next-generational family members to craft a life for themselves? How can they build on the family’s legacies
and make the trust relevant in the modern era?

In this master class, let Florence share her views on multi-generational Trust governance, restructuring and the fostering of
multi-generational beneficiary relationships.

Business Succession with Life Funded Buy-Sell Trust Arrangements
Alan Wong
Building a successful and prosperous business comes with years of sweat, hard work and tears.

For many business owners, there is the need to address their business succession. This involves planning for the smooth transfer and
succession of the business interests of business owners in situations such as their retirement, unforeseen disability or untimely death.

What are the options available, if family members are unwilling to take over the business shares? In this master class, Alan will share
on the usage of a Buy-Sell Trust Agreement, which is funded by life insurance that allows your family members to gracefully exit your
business with a tidy sum of cash in exchange of your business shares.

Multi-jurisdictional cross border estate planning issues
John Shoemaker
With globalization and the boom in overseas education over the past two decades, it is common for a Singaporean family to have
members dispersed around the globe and stationed in high tax jurisdictions like the US or the UK.

It is becoming a rising trend for people to purchase or invest in property and other assets in their current country of residence, despite
being a non-citizen of the country. Given that every jurisdiction has its unique tax laws, having assets in different countries will certainly
impact the manner in which gifts of money, property and legacies through trusts can be given to beneficiaries.

The pitfalls in failing to understand and adequately plan for different tax laws in establishing Trust structures can result in painful estate
leakages through taxation and regulatory penalties.

In this master class, John will raise the issues and considerations that need to be dealt with in multi-jurisdictional and cross border estate
planning.

Private Wealth Tax planning and Succession issues — A practitioners’ experience
Michael Perkins
The proposition to a client to create a Family Trust for wealth preservation and succession is the tip of the iceberg in Trusts planning.

To ensure that the Trust stays relevant across generations, there are a whole host of matters to be addressed, such as potential threats
to the family and to clearly understand the client’s objectives in structuring his Trust to dictate his clear wishes. Issues touching on the
current family structure, the family values, culture and relationships have to be discussed openly and candidly.

In this master class, Michael will share his experiences in Trust planning for families to aptly reflect the objective of the client’s wishes in
leaving a proper legacy to his family members.

High Networth Succession Planning for listed company owners
Johari Low
Founders of listed companies can hold stocks in their entities in various ways, such as direct individual ownership and indirect ownership
through secondary corporate vehicles.

While the existing ownership structures work well in the current economic landscape, chances are these structures will subsequently
need to be reorganized to cater to the new landscape affecting the next generation family members. The reorganization is necessary
to ensure that there is no dilution in the family ownership or splitting of stock and to enable leadership and control to be exerted by the
founder’s appointed successor.

In this master class, Johari will highlight the issues that business founders need to be mindful of and share the possible solutions in the
reorganization of listed companies’ ownership structures.

Why you need to value your Family Business in Succession Planning!
Stella Law
An important question family business founders need to think about, is if their family members are likely to be interested in the business
and to be part of the business upon the founder’s death. If the answer to the question is ‘No’, it is wise for the founder to structure
a business exit strategy for his family, which can take the form of a potential sale to competitors or a management buy-out after the
founder’s death.

Business valuation is sure to crop up at some stage of succession planning or the founder’s personal estate planning. For the upcoming
successor, the business valuation can be a clear marker of the business worth, motivating them to work to achieve higher value for the
family business. In structuring the exit strategy, the business founder will need to decide on the selling price or valuation formula for the
business.

In this master class, Stella will share the possible valuation methods and how founders can put in place family agreements or share sale
agreements, as well as the possible valuation formulae in those instruments.

Legacy Planning with Universal Life policies
Julie Teo
Universal Life Insurance products, which encompass the flexibility of whole life and term life insurance, have been popular with high
net-worth individuals in Singapore.

Media reports in 2017, stated that these jumbo life plans catering to the high net worth market, are expected to generate an annual
double digit growth of up to 20 per cent or more in the coming years. The growth is undeniably fueled by private banks’ funding of the
policy premiums, such that clients only need to pay a fraction of the initial premium through cash with the balance through bank loan.

With the significant death benefit pay out, Universal Life policies are often marketed as a tool for wealth creation and wealth protection.
In this master class, Julie will discuss how these instruments can be best utilized for wealth transfer to the next generation of family
members and for legacy planning.

Family Wealth Succession with the Family Office
Mark Smallwood
Using a Family Office to manage a founder’s substantial wealth is a relatively new idea that is growing rapidly in Singapore.

It is essentially a structure that engages in the management and succession of the family’s diversified wealth. The Family Office typically
employs permanent staff and professionals to undertake various functions relating to investments, asset management, legal affairs,
trusteeship, risk management and tax. At the same time, business succession planning is an important topic of discussion to avoid family
feuds that can potentially arise after the founder’s death.

In this master class, Mark will discuss the possibilities of founders setting up their family offices for succession and management of
wealth, as well as the importance of grooming younger family members on the values, objectives, investments and financials concerning
wealth management.

and strongly advocates that a good
plan requires one to take ownership and
responsibility to decide how to settle his or

to plan will leave the estate in disarray
and create unnecessary disharmony and
animosity among the beneficiaries.

SYNOPSIS
              Wills — Pitfalls and Family Feuds
              Lawrence Lim
              The dangers and pitfalls when no will is drawn up or when it is poorly prepared is a reminder for all to have serious
              thought and action. The media is full of stories of contests and family feuds over deceased persons’ estates. On
              hindsight many of the issues that are encountered could have been avoided. There will certainly be a myriad of
              questions to ponder over in will preparation and the speaker will share with you the importance of leaving your legacy
              in the best possible manner through a properly crafted Will.

              The flexible Family Standby Trust
              Darren Tan
              Many people in the mass affluent segment may desire an affordable, yet flexible trust structure for their family members
              or even themselves. The standby trust is a distinctive trust that caters to a person who may decide to only transfer
              some of his significant assets into trust at a future date. One reason for the popularity of the Standby Trust is its low
              set up cost and maintenance. The standby trust is an intermediate solution that is sufficient for many people’s estate
              plans.

              The speaker will describe the merits of the standby trust, which undoubtedly will feature increasingly as an essential
              part of estate planning.

              LPAs — When a person is Mentally Incapacitated
              Lim Kim Hong
              It is important to understand the risk of mental incapacity. It is estimated that in 2020, some 53,000 persons will suffer
              some form of dementia and also projected that in 2030, the numbers will rise to 92,000 (info from Alzheimer’s Disease
              Association). One of the major concerns flowing from an elderly person’s mental incapacity is not only in relation to his
              personal welfare but also the management of his assets and property affairs. With a Lasting Power of Attorney (‘LPA’),
              the entire process is simplified and a person (the donor) is able to appoint his most trusted person to take care of him
              and manage his affairs as his donee.

              The speaker will share on the issue relating to mental incapacity and the advantages of setting up a LPA.

              Advance Care and AMD Planning
              Lim Kim Hong
              The ACP is a guide that a patient is now encouraged to draw up for decision-making when he becomes unable to
              communicate. It is reduced in writing and often based upon a series of conversations that help patients decide on
              their future healthcare options. Patients can be guided by trained facilitators in these discussions.

              An AMD is a legal instrument that allows you to pen down your decisions about end-of-life care ahead of time. The
              AMD specifies what actions should be taken for your health if you are no longer able to make decisions for yourselves
              in situations of terminal illness especially where further medical intervention may be ineffective in prolonging
              meaningful life.
              The speaker will share with you what is involved in drawing up the ACP and AMD.

              What Executors do for Estate Administration
              Leong Mun Kid
              Before a person decides on naming a family member as the executor of his will, a close examination and understanding
              of what is involved is important. Executorship can be an onerous office. When a person dies, the authority to deal with
              his estate vests in his executors when the testator dies. Much time, responsibility and expense have to be committed
              by executors to engage lawyers for probate and to deal with third parties such as financial institutions and even the
              IRAS. It is often prudent to name two individuals to be the joint executors but could they work harmoniously together
              or what if one of them becomes disinterested?

              The speaker will unravel what needs to be carried out in executorship as food for thought when a person decides on
              the suitable persons to act in such office.
Rockwills Estate Planning Forum 2018: Public Talk

SYNOPSIS
              Wills — Dealing with certain assets classes
              Tay Teng Pong
              This session introduces the key concepts of Will making in dealing with the multi-faceted asset classes that could
              potentially be left behind in an estate. The concept of survivorship applies to jointly owned properties and accounts
              requiring special attention in various scenarios. What about insurance policies, nominations and where no nominations
              are made? There are also non-probate assets such as CPF nominations. Who and how should such asset classes be
              dealt with?

              The speaker will suggest how you could plan for the succession of such assets in a proper way to avoid adverse
              consequences that could arise for the lack of proper understanding.

              A legacy with Multi-Generation Family Trusts
              Eugene Soo
              With more significant wealth owned by Singaporeans over the last few decades, many are now faced with issues
              concerning the succession of the moneys and their businesses built up over their lifetimes. The old adage that wealth
              does not pass through three generations is a stark reminder that the founder needs to find solutions to address the
              issue. Founders grapple and ponder over these issues without coming to any conclusions. Will trusts help?

              The speaker will highlight what is involved in the creation of family trusts to hold the family wealth for multi-generations
              as a possible legacy solution.

              LPAs: Basics and differences between Form 1 and Form 2
              Tan Yuen Ying
              This session focuses on the LPA and AMD, two instruments that are critical in old age or where the person although
              not of elderly age becomes vulnerable through accidents or medical illnesses. With a Lasting Power of Attorney
              (‘LPA’), a person (the donor) is able to appoint his most trusted person to take care of him and manage his affairs as his
              donee. The AMD specifies what actions should be taken for your health if you are no longer able to make decisions
              for yourselves in situations of terminal illness.

              The speaker will share some of the aspects that need to be considered when planning to put in place such instruments.

              遗嘱,信托与遗产规划
              Lim Boon Yam / Zac Tay
              遗产规划其实可以让我们保障家人的生活之余,也可以确保自己几经辛苦累积回来的财富获得保护。妥善的遗产规划
              并不只是写遗嘱而已,它可以涵盖更多的层面,如通过信托继续管理遗产,确保继承人不会因为缺乏理财知识,纪律
              或经验而把遗产“败光”。妥善的遗产规划不只注意如何分配自己将会留下的遗产,而同时也会考量到家人的未来生
              活费的需求以及管理能力,若有年幼孩子还包括合法监护人等其他细节。

              我们借此机会跟大家分享一些关于写遗嘱的事项,一些对写遗嘱有疑问或不知该注意哪些事项,希望可提高大家对这
              方面的了解。

              Why put your Real Estate into Property Trusts
              Alfred Chia / Lee Chiwi
              The real estate that you own is often a substantial part of your total wealth holdings. Real estate, if it remains held in the
              estate or in trust can benefit the family in the form of significant capital gains over time. In the meantime, rental income
              of real estate can provide a stream of maintenance payments for family members. But what form of trust is suitable?
              When should a discretionary or an absolute trust be used? What are the kinds of stamp duties, property taxes and
              estate taxes expected in a trust ownership.

              The speaker will share how you could create a property trust to hold real estate in your succession plans.

SYNOPSIS
              Caregiving Journey: Managing Emotions and Stress
              Reuben Lim
              With an aging population and a growing number of elder persons becoming infirm, suffering loss of mobility and
              other vulnerabilities, it is expected that caregivers will also grow in tandem. Research has found that caregivers tend
              to neglect their own health care and have poor-quality diets, particularly among those who provide others assistance
              in basic activities of daily living (ADLs). Caregivers are also at high risk of fatigue and may lose their motivation to care
              for their loved ones due to the demands of their caregiving roles. Caregivers’ health will also decline in the long term.

              Caring for a family member is often challenging for families and friends. If you are a caregiver or may be one, YOU
              are extraordinary and you are not alone. The Silver Caregivers Cooperative Limited (SCCL), want to walk this journey
              with you in realising a caring society. Learn more about various challenges of caregivers and some techniques of
              managing the emotions and stress when you are a caregiver.

              Estate Planning for Digital Assets
              Saw Leong Aun
              With the prevalent use of the internet, digital assets are now everywhere. Many rely on use of such assets whether
              in communications, commercial transactions or social networking over the internet. Different types of digital assets
              require different and specific treatment in estate planning. Digital assets could be of significant financial value e.g.
              bitcoins and cryptocurrencies. Not all digital assets have financial value but carry a sentimental or emotional value for
              family members.

              The speaker will delve on the practical approach in managing and administrating your digital assets and the
              appointment of your Digital Assets Facilitator.

              LPAs for protection in the golden years
              Simon Chan
              Life has been a great adventure and ripe with precious life lessons in the journey so far. For couples entering their
              golden years, many would have addressed ensuring that there is the health care plan to address each other’s infirmities
              in old age. But putting in place the LPA is equally important and should not be ignored or postponed.

              Simon will share on the issues that couples need to grapple with should one of them becomes mental incapacitated
              and dealing with the situation of the surviving spouse.

              Wills — A kickstart or distraction to my children?
              Johann Tay
              This session focuses on planning the legacy strategy. Moneys is needed as a resource for maintenance for
              beneficiaries but we should be reminded, as said by the judge in his legal decision that “It is not in our judgment
              generally in the interests of young persons to come into possession of large sums of money which might discourage
              them from achieving qualifications and from leading settled and industrious lives to the benefit of themselves and of the
              community.”

              Johann will roll out some possibilities on creating your legacy that will help kickstart the lives of your children and not
              distract them from the pursuit of their education or career.

SYNOPSIS
              Using Standby Trusts to hold Insurance Policies and CPF monies
              Eric Seah
              The standby trust has been well sought by mass affluent families desiring an affordable, yet flexible trust structure
              to benefit for their family members or even themselves. One reason for the popularity of the Standby Trust is its low
              set up cost and maintenance. Yet the standby trust has the feature where passive assets could during the lifetime of
              the settlor be transferred into the trust. Some of these passive assets could include your insurance policies and your
              CFP monies. Insurance policies held in such trust could come under a structure that ring fences against any creditor
              attacks. CPF monies nominated to the trust will avoid any potential issues arising when compared to the naming of a
              beneficiary who might face any financial risks.

              The speaker will describe how the above assets could work with the standby trust, which undoubtedly will feature
              increasingly as an essential part of estate planning.

              Responsibilities of Donees in LPAs
              Lim Kim Hong
              With LPA making, a person (the donor) is able to appoint his most trusted person to take care of him and manage
              his affairs as his donee. Setting up a LPA is not complicated and it is an effective way to ensure that the donor is well
              protected in the event of his mental incapacity. Most people will naturally think of their spouses as the suitable donee
              to assume the responsibilities of doneeship. But what if the spouse is equally of elder age or already deceased or the
              donor a single person? Non-spousal appointments such as children, close relatives and friends could bring some
              challenges. Are they prepared to accept such responsibilities?

              Kim will share on such issues and the as naming non-spouses and substitutes in setting up your LPA

              Estate Planning involving foreign property
              Derek Liang
              Many of us acquire not only assets in Singapore but elsewhere in the world. The rules governing the succession of
              assets in other places may not be readily understood. What are the general principles that govern the succession
              of movable and immovable assets. Related to such principles include other aspects such as the domicile of the
              deceased, the impact of forced heirship rules in many civil law countries and estate duties and inheritance taxes.

              Derek will touch on the issues arising and the planning that will need to be addressed including the making of multiple
              wills to deal with the succession of assets in the foreign country.

              Wills —care for pets and giving to charities
              Joy Koh
              While many of us focus and address the needs and provisions for family members in will making, where there are
              family pets, their maintenance can also be put in the will. This scenario could be pressing especially where the testator
              is the primary person caring and maintaining his loved pets. Who should then shoulder the responsibility? How is the
              gift made? A testator may also be desirous of giving part of his money to a favoured charity or the hospice that had
              provided palliative care to him.

              Joy will share the issues associated with the giving of such legacies and the way the will could be set up to achieve
              his objectives.

SYNOPSIS
              Creating Family Trust using Insurance plans
              Kee Siew Poh
              This session advocates the settlement of life insurance policies into a family trust for purposes of estate planning,
              asset protection and succession planning. Often one of the reasons a person will buy a policy of life insurance is to
              give his or her beneficiaries liquidity, that is, ready cash for the maintenance for the family; since it might be difficult or
              undesirable to sell some of his other assets, such as his residential home or a family business. It may also be unwise for
              some family members to benefit from the policy proceeds at a time when they may be financially immature.

              Siew Poh will highlight how a life insurance trust could help your family to achieve your legacy plan.

              Wills — Guardianship and care for minors
              Jolene Goh
              When the family comprise of members of tender age, one aspect to address in the will making relates to the
              guardianship and care for minor children. What are the ways in which a person can be a guardian and how does
              testamentary guardianship work? What is the role of guardians and their authority and custody rights over the child?
              These matters are of great importance to parents as the planning will determine the persons who will take care of their
              child in their absence. Ideally, the guardian should meet certain criteria such as having a genuine interest and welfare
              in the child and the time and financial ability to support the child.

              Jolene will discuss how you could go about planning for guardianship of your children and the leaving of financial
              provisions and the family home for their care and maintenance.

              Administering difficult estates
              Bong Ying Wei
              Doing a will is sometimes only half the problem. You may have to consider the complexities that could arise should the
              time comes for your executors to carry out their duties. Such complexities could arise in multi-situations: the rivalries
              among your beneficiaries, their circumstances such as vulnerabilities, the peculiar nature of your asset classes, foreign
              owned assets or even the conflicts between the individuals you want to act as the joint executors. Are the proposed
              executors able to exercise their duties impartially such as in the sale of significant assets?

              Alfred will discuss the merits of appointing professional executors and trustees instead of family members. While
              professionals need to be remunerated, they have to exercise a much higher duty of care and supervision over the
              estate.
