The world is changing fast for high net worth individuals and their advisers. In addition to ever evolving tax laws, creating both opportunities and risks for clients with substantial assets, the tactics and targeted goals of numerous third parties impose an ever-increasing risk to the financial and personal safety of high-net-worth individuals. While such risks are not ubiquitous, they arise in ever more frequent circumstances. Being aware of warning signs that could indicate such a potential threat, as well as protecting our clients in advance against any such possible threats that could arise later, can make all the difference to these clients in the long run, both personally and financially.
