The coronavirus pandemic has already prompted a third (33%) of people in the UK into either drafting a new Will or amending an existing one, according to a new study from Handelsbanken Wealth Management.

Handelsbanken suggested that the crisis is having a wider effect by making families more open with their finances, with 78% of people believing the pandemic will lead to more conversations about inheritance planning within their families.

“It is now more important than ever to ensure that families are getting their financial affairs in order. Speaking to a Financial Planner ensures that all bases are covered and

family members are looked after. Having a watertight, up to date Will in place can bring peace of mind to you and your family.
