name is Zoë MacKenzie. I am an Independent Consultant who is a qualified Certified Professional Consultant on Aging (CPCA) and a Certified Executor Advisor (CEA)
expertise is with Planned Giving. I help my clients determine whether they want
to include a future gift in the planning of their Estate. Family is first as
always, but many clients feel strongly about giving back to the community
they live in after they have provided for their heirs.
I encourage and guide them with strategies regarding tax advantages with their donations and include
this in the planning of their Will to minimise the taxes at their death of their Estates and maximise their Legacy to both family and community.
purpose and passion are to make sure that I give the best possible advice to my
clients and to add a benefit of knowledge and advise to Executors of Estates
I work closely with financial planners and investment advisors to help them grow their business through the Family Asset & Inheritance review program. Estate planning does not end with the client. It is essential that the Executor has the knowledge and the tools to ensure the successful transition of an estate. It is through the process of Executor engagement before the client passes that can facilitate success.
On behalf of advisors, I conduct compelling client-centric seminars that get clients motivated to get organized and complete their planning process. It deepens relationships for advisors and opens them up to whole new world of referral business.
