Chartwell Associates Pte Ltd | Wills


If you are an expat, or about to become an expat, an international Will or Mirror Wills are essential to protect your estate. Failing to review your international Will can lead to your money, property and possessions being put in the hands of the state and not in accordance with your wishes.

As probate and succession laws vary from country to country, the distribution of your assets without an international will, could be a lengthy and complex process. It is likely your assets will be frozen upon your death and debts will continue to accumulate, leaving your loved ones in devastating financial risk. As an expat, an international will, will not only protect your estate, but also resolve the issue of holding assets in different jurisdictions.

With over a decade of experience, Chartwell Associates is committed to providing ethical advice, service and support to reach your financial goals and objectives. Authorised and regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, we will be able to advise and guide you to craft a will that minimises liability, protects your wealth, property and possessions and leave a lasting legacy for your loved ones.

Why do I need a will?

A will is a document that clearly outlines what should happen to your money, property and possessions when you die, saving your loved ones from immense financial stress and maintaining your life legacy. There are a number of reasons below as to why it is important to have a will:

  • Make provisions for your children regarding guardianship and how they will be provided for.
  • Leave money to your loved ones.
  • Maximise tax relief on your estate for your beneficiaries.
  • Indicate your funeral requirements.
  • Distribute your assets and personal effects in accordance with your wishes.

Wills vary from each individual based on circumstances, which is why it is important to always seek expert help from Chartwell Associates to help guide you through the legalities and solutions for an international will that will best suit your situation.

Does the will protect my children?

If you have children, wills are even more important. Should you or your partner die, a legal guardian will be nominated to take care of the children and therefore have total control over all the assets you leave them as stated within your will. If you have children and you fail to appoint a guardian, the court will appoint guardians for you, which could take several months and in the end, may leave your children with a guardian that is not to your wishes.

Seeking professional advice from a financial planner at Chartwell Associates will be able to ensure you secure a will that carries out all your wishes and needs.
