TORONTO, Oct. 26, 2020 /CNW/ - BMO Private Wealth today published the second volume of the BMO Wealth Insights magazine, which focuses on the issues that affect the successful transition of wealth and building a lasting legacy for the succeeding generation.

Anticipating a $1 trillion transfer of wealth over the next decade, the largest 10-year wealth transfer in Canadian history ("A Sudden Windfall", BMO Wealth Insights, 2018), the BMO Wealth Insights magazine explores the complex conversations and plans needed to prepare heirs to manage their future inheritance and family legacy.

"Transitioning the ownership of wealth or the family enterprise can be a delicate and nuanced process. Balancing the diverse priorities, goals and perspectives within a family can be challenging, and success relies on honest communication, professional guidance and collaborative planning," said Caroline Dabu, Head, Wealth Planning and Advisory Services, BMO Financial Group. "BMO Wealth Insights offers guidance on how to prepare and engage the next generation for the responsibilities involved with family wealth and legacy, and how BMO Private Wealth professionals can help families plan for a seamless transition."
