Receiving an inheritance
If you have received or are about to receive an inheritance (also known as a bequest) there are some emotions that, based on my experiences of helping people over some 25 years, are common.
Watch the short video opposite and discover how Barry helped a recent client.
- A desire to make good use of the money as Mum/Dad/Aunty etc had worked hard to save it in the first place – Guilt/Love
- I should invest it in a way that Mum/Dad/Aunty would want or approve of – Remembrance
- I know very little about investing – Fear/Embarrassment/Anxiety
- I should be very cautious about what I do – Anxiety/ disappointment avoidance

The series of articles will be added shortly.
