We Manage Your Wealth Now and Plan for Your Future Estate

Building a plan for your life and the future of those you care about

A sound estate plan is based on the efficient accumulation, conservation and distribution of your wealth. It also involves a plan for managing and protecting your assets in the event of your incapacity or death. Some people think estate planning is “just for the rich” but that is a misconception. Every person, however many assets they’ve accumulated, leaves behind an estate that must be resolved. As with other important life events, planning your estate in advance benefits everyone. You get to set things up the way you want them and your beneficiaries are spared the difficulties of trying to guess your wishes during an emotionally trying time. Estate planning services also provide the peace of mind of knowing your money will be managed in a way that leaves the greatest possible legacy for your family, friends, and favorite charities.

At Community Bank & Trust of Florida, our estate planners manage your assets with a focus on how you want to live now, your life’s goals and how you want to provide in the future for the people that are most important to you. We combine effective management services with a superior client focus to build a wealth management plan for life today and for the future.

The mission of our estate advisors is simple – to listen to you, identify your needs, implement a strategic plan to meet those requirements and deliver value-added services with consistent returns so that you can concentrate on leading your life. We’ll get to know your goals and family dynamics along with the differing needs of family members to help form a comprehensive plan for your future. The goal of every estate plan is to effect efficient accumulation, conservation and distribution of your wealth as well as plan for the control and protection of your assets in the event of your incapacity or death. CBTFL’s estate planners help you understand options and factors like estate and gift taxes, wills, and trusts, so you are empowered to make the best decisions for your estate plan.
