Passing on money – what makes us procrastinate?

People have a tendency to hang on to their money until they die and pass it on through their Will. But why do we do this? And does it make sense in today’s world when we are living so much longer and our younger generations have such huge financial struggles?

In this video, Tilney’s Head of Estate Planning Ian Dyall looks at why we procrastinate over passing on money and the wide financial, practical and emotional implications of doing this. Ian then explores how we can overcome this, setting out practical steps and giving examples.
