The videos feature 10-minute talks presented by ACTEC Fellows who speak to a live audience highlighting common questions and worse case scenarios that illustrate the value of preparing an estate plan customized to the needs of a family. The speakers offer insights targeted to help families plan and protect their assets and personal well-being and explain terms to help viewers engage in an informed discussion with their lawyer or advisor.
