No two families are alike, and neither are any two estates. That’s why it is important to take your personal situation into account when planning your estate, and Nedbank is there to assist you every step of the way.

Let’s take a look at what your plan should take into account:

A well-structured will ensures not only that your estate is practically and equitably distributed, but also that your beneficiaries are protected and estate duty is minimised.

Trust formation

Trusts help protect and preserve your assets for the future benefit of your dependants and their descendants.

Asset restructuring

Convert close corporations into companies, incorporate inter Vivos trusts, and more.

Asset management

Prepare for the future by anticipating which adjustments you may need.


Insurance can help you provide income as well as capital for unexpected events and future plans such as business investments, or for your and your family’s security in the event of disablement or death.

Offshore structures
