FBNQuest Designs Digital Asset Trust for Clients

Image

A platform to address the rising trend of digital commercial and investment activity in these times has been designed by FBNQuest.

The new initiative called FBNQuest Digital Asset Trust is in line with the company’s commitment to equipping clients with effective tools for generational wealth transfer.

A statement from the organisation explained that the product was created in response to an upsurge in online businesses and transactions by the investing public.

The solution aims to help individuals engage the services of professionals who will support with assessing associated risks and avoiding mistakes around how they organize their assets when investing through, or doing business on digital platforms, which could prevent the transfer of assets to intended beneficiaries in the future, the firm explained.

Also, FBNQuest said it has created a dedicated online platform where interested individuals can learn facts about estate planning as an important element in an individual’s overall financial plan.

The platform contains articles that explain basic concepts of estate planning and the various offerings that can be used to achieve financial goals.

Concepts such as Education Trusts for children, Islamic Estate Planning, Trusts for all types of owned assets, Wills, Executorship, and Power of Attorney; while podcasts with guest experts sharing insights on the ongoing Legacy Series are also available for listening, the company said.

Commenting on the offerings, the Managing Director of FBNQuest Trustees, Adekunle Awojobi stated that “The Legacy Series remains our contribution to broader efforts to demystify Estate Planning. We believe there are several opportunities individuals and investors are simply unaware they can take advantage of through FBNQuest Trustees, and we are committed to driving that awareness and providing strong support.”

Now in its seventh season, the Legacy Series campaign themed Building a Legacy that Lasts, continues to help individuals understand how to plan for the protection and seamless transfer of their wealth during their lifetime and after.
